Water is once again the protagonist of this artistic research, that this time goes deeper, literally: to be sounded in their texture, in their geometric and chromatic composition, are precisely the seabeds, the depths of the vital element which become charged with transcendental meanings. Water is both a vital and mysterious element, it hides secrets, it adapts. Similarly, the artist’s life shapes and lets itself be shaped by these conceptual and dreamlike images.

«Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does».
The subject of Aldo Salucci’s latest work is the element of “water”, removed from its natural habitat, considered in its fragments, represented in its perfect as well as unrefined forms. The artist is using this roughness, geometrically and chromatically precise, in order to recreate images by using highly elaborated photographic techniques. His images at first sight could appear a simple graphic study but in reality they represent a well defined vision of nature’s perfectly calibrated forms able to donate magic, welfare and serenity.
