Stefano MomentèBiography: Born in Jesolo, Venice, in 1961, under the sign of Leo, Stefano Momentè has always expressed himself using forms and colours. His early work was characterised by a marked figuration, which he later abandoned in favour of a representation of mankind’s inner self, in an ongoing experimentation of different techniques and materials. Momentè later focused his research on the informal, to propose a new, symbolic materiality, through layers of differently textured colours, where traces, signs and graffiti are reminiscent of action painting. Momentè’s art Art as a quest, memory, experience. Portrayal of the intimate, external projection of profound emotions and sentiments, layered in layers, signs, graffiti, etchings. Developed by brush- and spatula strokes, it rests, settles and ripens, just like a memory of our life. An art that is representation and therefore a symbol. Using diverse techniques and materials, but with a preference for mural work, involving frescoes, engraving, etching and throwing paint. Recovering symbols and archetypes, and using them as a universal language. Because if true art is only objective, as Gurdjieff claimed, it must nevertheless pass through the filter of the artist.

But then they develop instinctively, one colour upon another, opening the way between scratches and dribbling, before emerging. As though they had always been there, on the canvas, in the colours, the brushes and the tip of the graving tool. And only by bringing it all together can they be freed. Sometimes paint is arranged on the canvas like geological layers of an earth suddenly opened. They rush from within without distinction or precedence, in a causal, but certainly not random, gesture. And they continue to boil before their final rest, which is sometimes a while later. Between one layer and the next there is rarely temporal continuity. A work may await the arrival of the sign that makes it complete for a long time. Or the flow of colour may start the dialogue rolling again.
