Fabrizio Corneli

"The shadow of light"

Santiago Olmo

"His works radically transform the space, however, very slightly affecting it: when activated by light, they reveal drawings of shadows, figures of faces, buildings or bodies suspended in mid-flight". As the curator of the exhibition "The shadow of light" says, Santiago Olmo, the work of Frabrizio Corneli is a special (and spatial) study of light and forms. So, he always plays with the subtlety of the viewer's profiles and illusions, so that we can believe in a universe parallel to ours where everything is possible. The illusion and the art merge through small sculptural elements that transform the light that they receive artificially creating, nothing further from the reality, artifice. In turn, the work of Corneli is always capricious, because it must have the optimal conditions (space, darkness, privacy) to be shown, and in that sense, it will always be the work that dominates the space and not the other way around. Create with light, that is what Fabrizio Corneli shows us in the Ana Serratosa Gallery, which is not, in short, another thing to paint.
