Brut Series / Acrylic and Oil on Canvas / 140 x 200 cm (each) by Armando Cabba
This body of work is the exploration of the unrestrained action and thought of painting. As a reaction to the rigidness imposed by the Academy of Art, the series was born under the definition of being a therapeutic protest. From working directly on the wall with unprecedented brush work to utilizing chaos as a palette, the traditional is eluded. The more unacceptable we are, the freer we shall become. What began as purely wild now has a regime and now a duality exists in the artist. Years after the academy’s influence, the series acts as a reaction to his other self.
