Book Illustration 01
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 2 | Ricette per la frittura dell’aria 2

 

Portrait of bagpiper | Ritratto di zampognaro

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

“[…] Bigliazzi doesn’t paint: he coats with paint – and that’s the point. He coats what was. Or what – they say – may have been. Or what will be. Is the Portrait of Bagpiper (2008) really the crepuscular industrial plant depicted (better: de-pictured) or is it a lost neo-restaurantist fragment – nostalgic, invisible heritage of a motherly past generation? Or is it maybe a potentiality – what could be, what could appear, in fieri process – hommage to the intriguing incentitude of possibility – in the imminence of a future and encrypted gesture? Please, speak after the beep.”

Melania J. Burrone, in “New Media Digest For Cats”, July-August 2009

Seconda ricetta per la frittura dell’aria, molto popolari tra i critici e chi scrive di arte in generale.

“[…] Bigliazzi non dipinge: ricopre con vernici. E qui sta il punto. Ricopre quel che c’era. O che (si dice) ci fosse. O ancora: che ci sarà. Il Ritratto di zampognaro (2008) è il crepuscolare stabilimento industriale raffigurato (meglio: trasfigurato) o è un perduto scampolo neotrattorialista, retaggio nostalgico e ormai invisibile di una materna generazione passata? O non è piuttosto una potenzialità, ciò che ci potrebbe essere, che sta per comparire, processo in fieri e omaggio all’intrigante incertezza del possibile, nell’imminenza di un gesto futuribile e criptato? Parlate pure dopo il bip.”
