Painting as narration, as shape Painting, Painting as idea. You can find the synthesis of These three concepts of painting in the pictures of Gian Rino Ortelli. At the basis of His work we have anThat idea is never static and without an aim, but That Develops in Which Becomes a narration through the real shape. research of the narration is the leading wire joins Which works very different: from That chromatic pictures have an incredible range of stories and Represent "saint" to the recent works where light color leaves and describe Disclose bidies and souls. The first mono-cromatic pictures are under the influence of the classic revisitation by Mitoraj. If, for the sculpture, the light is a simple mean, for the paintingit it can (must) be a purpose. Narration is always the protagonist, Either in the life of sants, That in the movements of light Which folds lightens also discloses movements and souls. Narration does not allow to see impression Is that the characters have a dialoguewith spectator, to Whom They demand an emotional partecipatin in order to project in a wider participation. Narration However, like a single idea That Is not sufficient to make complete an artistic work, in the true Becomes attention for the shape and in the research of essentiality of means-? From an initial use of the full range of colors, we arrive to mono-cromatic pictures thatrepresent the extreme synthesis and the arrival point of formal research.

Event not to be missed! Nadia Turella and Giovanna Sacchetti, two contemporary artists whose works are inspired by various themes imbued with present are on display. Arguments and questions, of a moral and current nature that although they do not want, concern us and touch us closely in this time and in our journey. Nadia, guides us and leads us with the significant and beautiful works, through antithetical worlds. Lands in which elements like, friendship and bullying, the right to childhood and violence against women and children, the discriminating color of the skin and the beauty of the colors of mother nature and its respect are contrasted. Giovanna with her enchanting works accompanies us and guides us in her enchanted world, made up of trees and figures, defined by her as "angelic" that speak of emotions, loneliness, anger and protest against all forms of violence. His figurative missive urges us to understand that we are all one and we must live in harmony with everything, respecting other beings. So the message of both enclosed in the title of the exhibition is "Beyond" as a wish ... Because there is always hope that everything will improve. F.B.W.
