With this composition Patrick Piccinelli is interested in the notion of full and empty. The square at the bottom right is "full" and moreover is traversed horizontally by an informal black trace extending beyond the limit of the square.
The white square is "empty" but partially closed by the orange line. This visual play with limits intentionally interferes with the minimalist geometric structure set up in this composition. The sensitive rendering of traces and spots contrasts with the homogeneous ultramarine blue and white and light gray flat layouts.
Based in: Autavaux
Patrick Piccinelli (1959) was born in Yverdon and lives in Autavaux. His pictorial works explore the visual dialogue between notions of structure and randomness in the search for a balance between minimalism and expressionism. He parasitizes with relish his minimal paintings. He is a graduate of the School of Fine Arts and Applied Arts in Lausanne (now ECAL), where he worked particularly with Jean Otth and Pierre Chevalley. His works have recently been acquired by collectors in the United States, Japan and Switzerland.
