Behind The Canvas: Interview With Alessandro Pagani
What I paint is taken from reality (or from its fiction, like cinema) but my purpose isn’t to reproduce it. I used to work with images taken from different places and to present them in diptych or triptych, but most recently I’ve been working on a single image. In this case, my painting becomes an “imperfect simulation”, just like John Carpenter’s “The Thing” imitating humans and being interrupted before the ending of the operation. (cont)
