Description

English summary: Catalog of Carlo Testi's 2011 Florentine exhibition, with 62 color photographs of his recent work. Testi's paintings dissolve memory into sorrow or regret without assuming any outcry, or meaning to be a premise for a reaction. Feelings alternate like the seasons in nature and life. At times, they acquire a considerable size; at others, the painter contracts and embellishes his touch, reducing it to the size of a miniature. Italian and English text Italian description: E il catalogo della mostra allestita a Palazzo Medici Riccardi, Firenze, dal 16 settembre al 7 ottobre 2011 e riproduce a colori 62 recenti oli di Carlo Testi li esposti. Non c'e nessun tentativo polemico, nella pittura di Testi. Il ricordo si scioglie nel dolore, o nel rimpianto, e non postula nessuna levata di scudi, non intende porsi come premessa per una reazione. I sentimenti si alternano come le stagioni della natura e della vita. A volte essi prendono delle dimensioni notevoli; in altre circostanze, il pittore rattrappisce e impreziosisce il proprio tocco, portandolo alle dimensioni della miniatura.
