Book Illustration 2
Illustration from the Book “Pisa”, by Marco Bigliazzi, Pisa, Felici editore, 1986

Way back in 1986, when I was a really young student, a small publisher – Felici Editore – approached me with the proposal to draw an illustrated book about Pisa. I thought a little while about it and then I went back to the kind, old man and said: – I’ll do it, but it will not be another dull book about monuments and beautiful sunsets on the river and stuff. Maybe there will be no tower at all.

Mr. Spartaco took a deep breath, shrugged and said: – Ok, begin drawing.

A few months later – after a hot summer spent feverishly writing and drafting – the book was ready and was eventually published in October.

The picture above is one of the illustrations of this book, which was titled simply Pisa.

Hot air recipes 3 | Ricette per la frittura dell’aria 3

Cardboard TownsThird recipe about air heating, that is so popular among critics and art-writers in general.

“There is always a question in Bigliazzi’s work: are we proceeding towards an infinite destination? Thought and life in the contemporary, urges and emotions, synchronicity with no man/nature syntony in the semantic content, through mutual sharing in a silent universe, made of imperceptible signs sublimated in pure energy. Boiling matter which trasfigures in magmatic essence, floods out the urban wings of the canvas, pierces time, evolves and atomizes itself. Wait a minute – it seems that the warp drive engine won’t start.”

Charles Des Crêpes, in Introduction à l’Art du Tricot, Metanopoli (MI), 2006

Terza ricetta per la frittura dell’aria, molto popolari tra i critici e chi scrive di arte in generale, dopo le prime due.

“C’ è sempre un interrogativo nel lavoro di Bigliazzi: procediamo verso una meta infinita? Pensiero e vita nel contemporaneo, pulsioni ed emozioni, sincronia senza sintonia uomo/natura del portato segnico, attraverso la reciproca condivisione in un universo silente, composto di impercettibili segni sublimati in pura energia. Ebollizione materica che trasfigura in magmatica essenza, esonda le quinte urbane della tela, perfora il tempo, evolve e si atomizza. Aspettate un momento, ché non mi parte il motore a curvatura.”

Charles Des Crêpes, in Introduction à l’Art du Tricot, Metanopoli (MI), 2006
