Mixed technique on wooden panel
Stefano Trappolini was born in 1964 and graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome in 1990, painting section. His research is mainly focused on painting and video-art. Since 1992 he has been teaching art of photography and cinematography at the Art High School in Pomezia. The research of the symbol is constant in Stefano Trappolini’s art which he investigates through materia and colour. The symbol is by its nature the result of a chosen sign, realized through a pictorial gesture, the dialogue becomes the container of a spark of an idea: the concept. Studying the entire production of Trappolini, we can immediately notice how the symbol identifies itself in a figurative recognizability, with the intention of showing its primordial nature. So in this process of searching the truth, painting becomes an extension of the artist’s thought through materia, colour and light, his mean of investigation. It is through the specific artwork that the artist narrates his research as a speech through which the ardor and the curious pain of who is ready to unhinge rules, on investigating the bowels, in order to reach the awareness of having touched, also for a moment only, the shape of the pure symbol: the balance.
The artist’s process of research is accompanied and accompanies our journey of investigation through light, constant in all his works.
A light that guides the dialogue, the inner light that is strengthened in becoming the light of intellect. The light that guides the hand and the look of an artist who wants to see “beyond” wants to “enter”.
For this reason the shape abandons its cliché and walks: on the canvas, on the cards, on the wood; it pierces its support and
tells sections of contemporaneity, splits of life.
