Ireneo Frizzarin

….a modern artist

Ireneo’s latests work mixes abstract and figurative painting and photography. He use images of his close family in their youth from old photograph albums and use them as though they are strangers, to simulate a detachment because he remembers them and know them as adults. The artist also frequently uses religious images which reflect my Catholic upbringing in the Italian countryside.

But no matter what base image he use, the technique is always similar. First lay down a very thick layer of varnish and then draw over it with a very chaotic movement of marks in different media.Ireneo’s do this to try and evoke and question powerful central parameters of human existence such as life span, identity, body and death. The artist afraid of the velocity of time; confusion often disturbs his practice, and he tries to catch a moment in time to imprint it onto a painting or an image to keep that moment alive forever. But of course the painting is not alive; it is dead and only the viewer makes it alive in a new moment, creating a new cycle of life, memory and, ultimately, death.

About the Artist…

Frizzarin’s latest work mixes abstract and figurative painting and photography.He uses images of his close family in their youth from old photograph albums as his starting point and treats these images as though they were of strangers, simulating a detachment because he remembers and knows them as adults. He also frequently uses religious imagery, reflecting his Catholic upbringing in the Italian countryside. But no matter what base image he uses, the technique is always similar. First a very thick layer of varnish is laid down and then drawn over with a vigorous, chaotic movement of marks.

This process evokes and questions the powerful central parameters of human existence; life span, identity, the body and death. The work attempts to catch a moment in time by imprinting it onto a painting to keep that moment alive forever. But of course the painting is not alive; it is dead and only the viewer makes it alive in a new moment, creating a new cycle of life, memory and, ultimately, death. Frizzarin has been commissioned by DKNY and private clients since he left college in 2008.
