Sevega Adriano`s colorful works in oil on canvas adopt abstract expressionistic principles to explore mark making as a form of evocative poetry.through layers of fragmented gestures that reced and emerge to be seen at varying intervals .
Adriano paint with an emotional immediacy which is instantly engaging and appears always in the edge of carrying the viewer to another world entirely.
Elaborate swatches of color snake and spresd across the frame in spirals and serpentine figurations , entering into the peinterly realm of fantasy . imagistic illusion and dream life.
Using primarily organic raw canvas and burlap over wood stretchers or panels.
Adriano`s classic surfaces,prepared with organic glue and gesso,transmit the energetic potential of pure nature via the expresssive realm of talismans and pure artistic vision .
Sevega Adriano was born in 1960 in the Piedmont Region of noethen Italy .
In addition to painting he is a professional Art Restorer and Refinisher .
He currently lives and works in Los Angeles , California .
I`m iterested in the abstract fragmentation of the form .My intention is to capture my fantasies ,my visions ,my dreams through which I want to communicate the immediacy and purily of my emotions .My paintings are like a primitive and archaic skin representing myself and the nature that surrounds me !
I use organic materials -raw canvas on wood stretchers and burlap over wood panels . Before applying the colors with a spatula or brush, I perform the classic preparation with animol glue and gesso .
To me the modernity and the challenge of abstract work has an obligation to keep strong connections to the past and to the tradition.
The foundation of my work is finding the appropiate balance between the modernity and the tradition which are both inherent in abstraction.
