This piece donated by Cuniberti to the Hospice shows the typical world of the artist. The masonite fibre board, the rapid streaking line which we know will not stop at the edge of the board but will race on over the work table, out the window, and beyond, retracing an existence that is both imaginary and “unpredictable” as stated in the title. But to prevent it from escaping – simply stop and listen to the music: it could be an aria from Mozart. Enjoy the thistledown lightness, absorb the colours, grasp the signs not of what seems to be there – but what truly exists. Because, like Osvaldo the strange inhabitant of Stranalandia, Cuniberti creates his own period in time, his own weather, and his own units of measure, flora and fauna: in short – his own universe. In this work the artist opens the door to his world, letting the viewer enter his Pirro island and go surfing between his unpredictable skies and horizons.
