More Detail

Part of the series ‘Paesaggio Urbano’ this painting is showing a moment from an urban landscape, in this case a bdark wall at nightfall and just the corner of a bright green car. 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 (not giving away an exact location or time). By doing so, he is bringing the melancholic atmosphere of the mundane and grey place in the city to the foreground.
