Melting Birds By Maurizio Bongiovanni

Maurizio Bongiovanni created these great oil paintings of birds, seemingly melting off the canvas. This is his explanation: "My work “Bird Rib” questions the effect that the "digitalization" is taking in the panorama view, re-marking the boundaries of the relationship between nature and technological progress. The world I created is crossed by a paradoxical form of mixing between the natural and technological artifice, and oscillates between a descriptive real and abstract imagines. In my paintings there is a form of anxiety that lies behind the ambience and serenity of a seemingly healthy and unspoiled nature. This nature is far from the “human” eyes because it is polluted by core technology that scans and encodes the representations itself."
