Framework “Skyline New York” Contemporary Artwork
“Cities say a lot about us: who we are, who we know, where we have been. They become part of us and stay with us throughout our lives.”
The work depicts the silhouette of New York City, one of the world’s most iconic cityscapes. A place famous for its towering skyscrapers, vibrant culture and unparalleled beauty. A place famous for its The Skyline is the outline of the urban horizon outlined by the buildings that stand out against the skyline skyscrapers, vibrant culture and unparalleled beauty. The work is the setting of a stage, and the artist invites us to be the protagonists. New York is a city that has always represented the strength and vitality of the United States. The immensity of New York City’s skyscrapers fills the blue and grows out of proportion, allowing us to feel depicted in the painting as we walk through that immensity and freedom. The three-dimensionality of the work engages the viewer, allows everyone to belong to the landscape by sharing the deep sense of grandeur.
The artwork is made from reclaimed wood, which with its natural grain and chiaroscuro gives three-dimensionality and depth to the subject. The Work is created by selecting pieces of wood arranged in a precise manner until the desired image is created. The end result is amazing and unique. The use of salvaged materials such as pieces of wood underscores a deep ecological sensibility that makes the artwork even more special.
Wood has always been used in art, as a support for painting and for decorations and inlays, but especially in statuary. In the early decades of the twentieth century, this material became something different, becoming the raw material for works unique to the Avant-gardes. Futurists, Dadaists and Cubists used boards or fragments of wood, especially recycled wood, to make their compositions. During the twentieth century, experimentation continued with the American Minimalists and in Europe with Arte Povera, think of Pistoletto and Kounellis. Over the years more and more artists have used recycled wood, breathing new life into discarded or discarded wood. In recent years, the use of waste material in the making of artwork has taken on new meanings, addressing the issues of innovation and sustainability. That’s the magic of Art: you don’t need precious materials to create an emotion.
