Mimmo Paladino - fresco 1978
Paladino develops, on large surfaces, a universe inhabited by allegorical and primitive figures, made up of ancestral myths and symbols that all refer to the Samnite culture, reflecting the search for its own cultural identity.
In his stylistic vocabulary figurative and abstract elements coexist, filiform figures, which belong to the same constitutive bestiary of human beings and fantastic animals. The path of linguistic experimentation also leads him to a recovery of all traditional techniques, from painting to engraving, from sculpture to mosaic, without ever neglecting the use of drawing, the fundamental expressive vehicle of his work.
Paladino's work moves between references and emotional events, which concern the artist's private life, distant situations; the affinities betweenArt and theAlchemy they are manifold, since both are sources of knowledge; the common goal is in fact, the achievement of a cosmic harmony to which the artistic creation arrives through thebalance of shapes and colors.
Paladino reiterates that art is always a work of language, therefore a problem. His research is a work on essential signs to which all images are traced.
