In fact, it is not easy to pigeonhole between the current and recent and contemporary art movements: does not fall as such, for example, in the abstractionism, nor in the informal and subsequent outcomes conceptual, is not post-conceptual, or, say , optical, or, say, generically "ecological", it is not even fully figurative, because it is only apparently. This does not mean, however, that it remains as an adventure without meters of orientation in the complexity of the art scene, which indeed they are, but reworked with due discretion and, above all, preliminarily subjected to a process of internalization and reinterpretation, up to conceal the possible substance of models, which, in hindsight, is culturally, often very high and well rooted. Because there is no space here for a detailed analysis, I limit myself to two levels of suggestions: in his works alternate and integrate suggestions from some masters of Piedmont in the second half of the last century, along with references - that is clear , are not to be understood as citations outward - even more distant in time, to those relevant to the "classical" tradition. In the process of composition, or "constitution of the image," according to the historical definition of Cesare Brandi, they operate at a distance, just with "discretion" as a soft substrate within which is building the true image and own, one that takes shape at the end of each of its research work, in which dense and patient preparation are taking shape, alongside values ​​deliberately and consciously expressed, instances and emotional impulses, which seem out of control. In the dense jumble and coexistence of image and signs, of figuration, on the one hand, entrusted to the pure and simple "image formation" and, secondly, of outcrops of signs, which by their very nature allude to paradigms and codes not visual, in that conflict of opposites, you must track the status inexorably contradictory prevailing in and is based contemporary art. And from that, obviously, even Elena Monaco may shy away, but we know show equally severe mastery. Paolo Nesta
