Colors are no longer just colors, but nature’s means of communicating with human beings. In dialogue with artist Francesco Migliaccio
Artist Francesco Migliaccio art – Trees
Nothing is artificial, everything is about earth and truth: nature observed by an artist is charged with second meanings in the moment of representation. Colors are no longer just colors, but nature’s means of communicating with human beings.
Eucalyptus Deglupta is a tree made up of layers of different colors. I translate this quality in a mix and match of style. The result is an arty research with a sense of revelation meaning that deep down there’s always something to find.
Albizia Julibrissin is not the ordinary pink tree. It reminds me of India, but also something frilly. I combined these styles creating a new mix. The result is a kitsch folk that takes inspiration from exotic world.
Acacia Dealbata is the puffy tree characterized by a yellow tone. It represents the age of innocence, so I developed my research giving a sense of intimacy, with some playful and childish notes.
Crataegus Monogyna is the purest tree I’ve ever seen. Elegance, in a classic way. I decided to describe it through images characterized by an aristocratic allure but sometimes combined with a kind of decadence and sadness for the times that are already gone.
Salix Babylonica is the ‘sad tree’ It’s like it has a soul. Melancholy is the keyword to describe my research, finding this sense of loneliness from art to photography. I also emphasize the contrast between this feeling and Hope, represented by the green color of the tree itself.
Wisteria. Its purple shades create a whimsical atmosphere. My research revolves around this vision that brings your eye in a surreal world, another dimension characterized by a soft palette. Imagination is the only key to enter.
Adansonia is a matter of shape. Its trunk is the inspiration of my research. A brown palette with an African taste representing a raw and primordial world. Nothing is artificial, everything is about earth and truth.
Acer Rubrum is characterized by a red hue that becomes the main subject of the research itself. This color represents something heavy that makes us reflect about nature and its condition.
