(Red Sun, 2017)

UK/Italy, 2017, 8 minutes


An exploration of an apocalyptic deranged narrative, Sole Rosso (Red Sun) starts from the disembodiment of three paintings to create a visual narrative of death, war and human annihilation. 

Focusing on obsessive and recursive themes as in an oneiric tale of total destruction, the piece brings together different artistic practices, from sound to painting, using cinematographic influences but steering away from figuration in favour of  visual abstraction. 

An example of visual abstraction and at the same time an experimental piece of video art, Sole Rosso investigates the contemporary themes of global war and the future of mankind posing the question of the nature of violence in the larger framework of the cosmos, wondering on its origins and the reason for its existence.
