Vedova is a great master of Italian abstractionism. His personal sensitivity actually derives from the great history of Venetian art, particularly from the eighteenth century, but his expressive temperament challenges European and American artists. He explores the vicissitudes of matter and color, in paintings in which he loves to contrast different colors, yet remaining rigorous and almost maniacal. In this stupendous work we see the conflict between black and white, following a brushstroke of excruciating power, which seems to describe skeletons and carcasses, almost composing a Guernica updated for the fifties. Vedova therefore overcomes the limits of abstract expressionism by transforming the act of the brush into current art. To do this, he needs all the wisdom of a Venice reinvented and bestowed on him through his thoughts. Truly and honestly, the artist builds his own universe. Thus, thanks to its disruptive energy, he projects itself into our imagination.
