Pierpaolo Campanini’s research explores the inherent limits and possibilities of painting, creating moments marked by a sense of incompleteness and transience: precariously united, ephemeral composites survive only through their painted representation. At the same time intimate and monumental, the sculptures assembled in his studio in a meticulous process of accumulation of objects and natural elements are, through pictorial mediation, rendered solitary creatures – inhabitants of a fictitious reality, both tangible and indefinite.
