Drawings, 23 x 30 cm (A4) colours pencil on pastel paper.
Over the lockdown period my grandma has been in complete isolation and so I have been making colouring books to send to her, just simply outline drawings for her to colour in. Imaging her colouring in at her house in Leyland, Lancashire, I am making a series of drawings with coloured pencil at my home in London. They are channeled with this emotional connection and use humour to explore the things we might be doing at home during this time - like hair trimming, unblocking drains and poking around into the ones we live with in suddenly closer proximity.
about the artist
Partituren (Null) 5 / (scores (zero)), 2019, Acrylic on MDF, 32.6 cm x 26.5 cm
Luigi Archetti's artistic work revolves around the interface between art and music, which he aims to make tangible in a variety of ways. In his installation-based stagings he uses drawing, painting, video and sound to create tense and highly aesthetic spaces and complex reference systems.
The vocabulary of the music manifests itself not only in ideas and the way works are realized, but also in the direct use of objects and concepts from this genre. Luigi Archetti stages the space as an image carrier in which various impulses – visual and tonal – encounter one another.
Freewords, from the project 'Beyond Borders' by Olga and Oleg Tatarintsev, 2018-2020, Paper, markers, 21x29, 5 cm
Texts written by authors who were physically deprived of freedom or imprisoned serve as the basis forall the works of the project: letters and poems of such outstanding Russian writers as Fyodor Dostoevsky,Joseph Brodsky, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Osip Mandelstam, Varlam Shalamov, Daniil Kharms and Yuli Daniel.
These work is from a series of unique prints I have been making on and off for about the last 15 years. They are each printed and/or painted directly onto old National Geographic pages. This series of works often suggests a sublime experience that is interrupted or partially obscured through the addition of black geometric forms and filigree lines; hypothetical structures whose uncompromising geometry contrasts with their surroundings, and oscillates between dystopian vision and utopian potential.
