PETER CASSAGRANDE

His paintings, mainly large formats, are born during a frenetic painting process. Many layers are superimposed by large areas of color. The table develops gradually from bottom to top. Traces of paint from the background remain visible and reappear on the surface, as if the painting wanted to recall its construction.

The more we look at Peter Casagrande's paintings, the more we put the usual conception of space into perspective. Casagrande empties the space of each figurative being and gives birth to it only through color and the superposition of painting structures.
