Antinoo Farnese Mug

Pop Mug

Design by federicocortese

From the series “The color of memory”, oil on paper, original size 35 x 35 cm, 2016. ORIGINAL SOLD. These works come from some thoughts about classical sculpture. We know that the sculptures were originally colorful, and that the Egyptian, Greek, and Roman cultures, but also the pre-Columbian cultures, favored, to decorate them, very bright colors. But the passage of time has given us these sculptures predominantly white, so, from the Renaissance until today, the sculptural representation of man is almost always monochrome. And it is interesting to think that if by some historical accident, the same thing had happened with painting, today we would paint with one color, and we would find it quite natural, just as the monochrome sculptures seem entirely correct. Obviously this reasoning should be much more complex, but for me it was only the starting point for a reflection on the way we perceive reality, and what is that influences it. Looking for an expedient that makes it look colorful something that is not. Original sold: https://www.saatchiart.com/art/Painting-Antinoo-farnese/46606/2938983/view
