The intrinsic poetry in Gastini’s work is one of the main elements in the piece donated to the Hospice by the artist: deep scratches and a limited colour palette in mother of pearl, black and dark blue, plus slices of slate (sometimes replaced by terracotta) create an interaction between light and shadow. Any graphic elements – smudges and lines – are scarce and seem to float in space on the paper. The painted aspects transfer powerful energy to the material elements, to capture and direct the viewer’s gaze rapidly from one space to another as if leading it to participate in the expanding action of the composition. This work conveys a sense of lightness despite the materiality of its component elements.
