“ReArt” – Cesare Catania – Contemporary Art Sculpture
Dimensions: 150 cm x 150 cm
Technique: Acrylic on wood, plastic, paper and natural rope
The picture “ReArt”, made entirely from waste materials such as plastic, paper, wood and natural rope, connects directly by both the colours used and the emotions inspired, to previous paintings titled “The Cage” (2013) and “The man who cannot see” (2013) realized by the artist in the past years.
Also in this opera, Cesare Catania conveys emotion of anxiety and suffocation with the use of strong and contrasting black stained colours captured in the rope, just to express the uneasiness that man experiences in a society full of waste. Cesare Catania wants to show how not only the latter can be recycled but can even become a work of art. Hence the title of the opera “ReArt”, which interfaces the artistic world with that of the recycling one
