Luigi Senesi

Partizione Obliqua, 1974

A native of Pergine, Luigi Senesi attended the Art Institute of Florence, specializing in mural painting and fresco thanks to the teachings of Renzo Grazzini. Beginning in the 1970s, the road opened for Senesi toward investigations into perception and research in “pure painting” that would lead to a setting aside of figuration in favor of synthesis and abstraction. Around the 1970s in Trent there is an important interest in the problems of light and color: Senesi’s colors were in fact pure and vivid. The artist embarked on a path of studies on the physical-chemical factors of colors, on their analysis, on the techniques of painting practice, up to a greater knowledge of the visual apparatus, perceptions and chromatic balance. The protagonists of the proposed scene are bright colors: light blue, blue, a touch of green and orange. Together with Schmid, Senesi is one of the major protagonists of the Italian scene in this historical period.
