Beim Malen

Image and viewer                                                                              


With the advent of modernism, painting has become increasingly detached from the representation of an object. But what can be seen in an abstract painting if, for example, a familiar object is not recognizable? What does a painting "tell" us, especially when, as in the present selection, it is a matter of arrangements, transparent or even dominant color accentuations and compositions? 


This is the question that the painter Arnaldo Ricciardi deals with. The viewer of Ricciardi's work is also equally confronted with this circle of questions - especially if, on the one hand, he does not want to make a judgment of like and dislike and, on the other hand, does not want to leave his works solely with the fact of what they undoubtedly are: abstract, dialogizing compositions.
