Drawing is expressed in its most basic form (the child) in Enrico Robusti’s work, and at the same time in the most complex and deep facet (the elderly), without the pretentious mannerism of chiaroscuro, but only with lines, spots, apparently shapeless tangles and yet more expressive (and evocative) than any realism.
Here the mediation of oil paints, glazing, layers - with the inevitable expectations that come from it - is no longer necessary.
Robusti's drawigns are pure amazement, the wildest imagination that captures the climax of (our) reality.
Things never seen before, like the characters and situations from Fellini’s "Amarcord" movie, anonymous and insignificant in their daily lives, surging to the unforgettable protagonists through the artist’s imaginative eye.
The exhibition "THINGS NEVER SEEN BEFORE" was the third round of the artistic and cultural path initiated by the NFC - Communication-Graphic-Editoria (www.agenzianfc.com) in its open space of Borgo San Giovanni (Rimini, Italy), hosting artists yet to be discovered by people in this town.
The introduction to the exhibition catalogue is by Alberto Agazzani.
