Entry Title: "After still life"
Category and Expertise: Fine Art, Professional
Entry Description: Greco’s still life pictures goes from a real point of view of a photo to a new and allegorical dimension. Roberto Greco tries to make the viewers think a bit deeper and make them think of what the painter was truly trying to express.
Greco’s aim is not to distance himself from classical masters, his pictures put us in his world of passion, opulence and sexuality. With a certain sense of humour and cynicism, Greco breaks the stereotype of classical Still Life by adding disturbing elements like pets. You can see and feel Greco’s narration little by little through all of his pictures, the viewers are automatically having their own interpretation of Greco’s pictures with some simple details, sometimes just with the buzz of a fly.
The portrait of the woman with the grapes is also in the same category of Still Life, from
her voluntarily prude posture, she allows herself to be looked at, as if she were inviting
us to discover her story...
