I love the unique brushwork of Italian artist Francesca Bifulco. With short swift marks Bifulco captures the chaos and physical mass of a crowd as well as the claustrophobic oppressive sensations of an individual caught up in that crowd. The artist says, “I am deeply interested in all of those feelings that are enlivening body and soul of the crowd: assault, delirium, waiting, compactness, melting pot and the ungovernable. The crowd takes possession and control of the painting space, until choking space itself.”
This August Francesca Bifulco will be showing her paintings in Tokyo at the Roppongi 605 Project Space.
