Enrico Della Torre (Varese –Italia-, 1988) shows us, under the title "Normal", a selection of recent paintings done between January and October 2018.
The artist´s process consists in submitting the canvases to a series of washed layers of rabbit glue, alternating them with different repetitions of charcoal drawings. Rabbit glue, given its liquid nature, washes out the drawing as much as it fixates it, generating the overlapping of a group of thin layers able to provoke the uncertainty of the unfinished.
The work invites us to reflect upon the painting method, its own logic and practice. Far from trying to manifest themselves as contemplative objects, each painting intends to be a starting point capable of producing an introspective response to anyone who approaches them.
In deliberate contraposition to the idea of "special", the title of the show aims to dissuade the visitor to search in it any kind of ability or singular skill, offering a sincere approach to the works, and finding in the personal reflection of the observer the most valuable material of an art object.
