Pierre Antoniucci - Coulisses - 2022 - Oniris
Pierre Antoniucci asserts his pleasure to paint and to reflect the painting through his work between figuration and abstraction.
For several decades, Antoniucci has developed several very personal ways of painting: drawing and folding of the canvas or paper creating reliefs and discontinuities in the reading of the subject or texts.
His paintings are "additions of subtractions". They result from accumulations of motives successively covered, buried, totally or partially according to the pictorial and plastic research of the painter, under layers of ashes. What is destined to disappear constitutes the matter of the painting, even the painting itself.
Where others might be satisfied simply with the appearance of an idea, the outline of an association of shapes and colors, Pierre Antoniucci develops to the end all the properties of the plastic arrangements implemented in each situation, on each theme, in each work procedure.
The exhibition "Coulisses" (Backstage) displays recent and unpublished works from the last two years. Among these, paintings on cardboard of very large and modular formats are from his work entitled "JAB" whose presentation by the artist is developed in the release below.
