ABOUT THE PAINTING

"Bet is over. The work satisfied me for its construction, and how the various parts have been painted. The painting shows a robin in flight, a walking cat and a woman talking on the phone. Of these three creatures, the only one that we know where it will go is the cat, because it will go to the woman. The background participates in a fundamental way, creating a livable, accessible space where the three characters can act. But what will happen once the cat will reach the woman? Time is crystallized into an eternal bet. The bet that is the invention of painting where everything is determined by the passage of the time, and the flow of the time has allowed the painting to take shape. The brushstroke, every single brushstroke, allows a formal reading. We can see this develop, we can see the passage of the time and how be can represented. Through the three characters story, the colors are laid on the canvas with the brushstrokes, one after the other, they represent the true work of art, that is, the time spend to paint it, . Painting is painting and it is also the artist, because within it is enclosed its time." Alberto Repetti
