Towards a Blue Mannerism
A personal reinterpretation of the Mannerism style that translates into an encounter full of vibrations capable of transferring all the elegance of the sixteenth century inspiration into a language that speaks the Contemporary, precisely because it is imbued with classic vibrations. In this perspective, Mannerism is transformed into a fantasy world.
The Four Elements series is a section of the artistic project entitled Micromegalic Inscriptions. The ongoing research process of a peculiar and identifiable creative language of Matteo Mauro Studio stops among the folds of the four natural elements: Air, Water, Fire and Earth. These deep forces foresee the creations of the series in motion. In a continuous and hypnotic stream, controlled lines run along the digital canvas. Matteo Mauro continues this hermeneutical journey with an evolution in the technological sense. His drawing language insinuates and transforms; it implements a process of abundant abstraction, made of infinite linear variations and contortions that multiply the force of traditional inscriptions for a magnetic result.
