More Detail

Part of the series ‘Paesaggi Urbano’ this painting is showing a moment from an urban landscape, in this case a big trash can as well as part of another one. It resembles a blurred photograph from far, but the painting strokes become clear once you step closer. Typical for Carmelo Cilia, he doesn’t use any distinct features (like writing on the trash can) to bring the melancholic atmosphere of this mundane and grey place in the city to the foreground.
