I Will Call it Land, Paolo Franzoso 21st Century Contemporary Landscape Painting



I will call it land (There I will love you), Italian contemporary school_Collage Collage on Board 125 x 185 cm In this picture Franzoso represents a wooden boat with a red sail that fights between high and frothy sea waves, waves that are reminiscent of the great wave of Kanagawa by Hokusai (The Underwave off Kanagawa). And in the background a seagull seems to drive it in the direction of a lighthouse. That finally the earth is near? Beautiful game of words of the title that the artist has decided to give to his painting, playing on the double sense in Italian tongue (la) chi(amerò) (te)rra (translated in: I will call it land / There I will love you). The promise of a solitary island ready to welcome a love after going through the storm. The evocative visual atmosphere contained in the collages of Paolo Franzoso, have the power to enchant the viewer, to intrigue his/her mind and lead him/her to make a wander inside that piece of world where images, colors, words of life, objects and recycled materials try to overlap to come out from the canvas itself. His artworks are characterized by their "chaotic atmosphere", in which getting lost to find ourselves in some corner of the picture, in the silent breath of our own balance. The greatest gift that Paul Franzoso has, it is the ability to give new life to things, reinterpreting them, with enormous creative energy.
