Emilio Vedova is one of the masters of Italian and world abstractionism. His long activity during the twentieth century shows an unparalleled talent, which he achieves through different phases of painting, all however distinguished by a signature look that is both tumultuous and refined. Following the ancient tradition of the Venetian authors, he uses the color black to create the structure of his works. Then, he lights them up and makes them examples of expressionism, using other colors, in particular red and green. An artist certainly tormented yet truly very classical, Vedova expresses himself in a lofty way both in large paintings as well small and medium size, which is what we see here. The vortex, precisely elaborated through black, involves a dynamic and at the same time dramatic vision of reality. Then, exploring more closely the design and the stroke, we discover how each small line, small smudge, small wave represents an element of harmony and even grace, in the confines of a creation still agitated by a sublime wind.
