FRAMING: Andrea Carpita


Andrea Carpita (1988, La Spezia) lives and works in Carrara (IT). He graduated in Painting in 2015 at the Academy of Fine Arts of Carrara.
His research led him to go through various stages of the representation process: From a fantastic and delicate imaginary to reminiscent phytomorphic suggestions of Japanese aesthetics, up to a radical synthesis of the visible through few points and lines to summarize a body, a face, a landscape. All without having the pretension to tell everyone a story.

Last winter, we went to his home studio in Carrara where he told us about his practice which combines the analogue and digital, abstraction and figuration. He explained the meaning and the importance that painting could still have, today.
