Orfico metamorfico. Luca Ciaccia: I labirinti del modernismo by Aa.Vv.,Massimo Rossi Ruben

By Aa.Vv.,Massimo Rossi Ruben

Nella pittura di Luca Ciaccia protagonista è una luminosità abbagliante che avvolge le forme, stemperandone i contorni. Sulla superficie si estendono ampie campiture cromatiche che compongono una trama pittorica cangiante e variegata da cui emergono decisi contrasti chiaroscurali risolti in un’armonia tonale. Queste raffinate cromie si innestano su di un’attenta e meticolosa costruzione architettonica, che riecheggia le sperimentazioni prospettiche del primo Rinascimento. Come in keeping with i grandi maestri dell’Umanesimo, anche in line with l’artista gli ambienti diventano spazi abitabili, nei quali los angeles successione dei piani in profondità determina composizioni organiche ed equilibrate.
