Broken Narratives of the Universe and the Mind

(an introduction to the work)


Mostly concerned with the concepts of obsession, cosmological darkness, the universal act of murder, the phenomenology of evil, the aesthetics of insanity, and hypersexuality, Pietro Reviglio's work develops through an exploration of the interplay among image, music, the pictorial act and irrational narratives. 

Images stem naturally from the experimental and performative act as a free flux of associations and endless destructions of previous layers of thought and work.  A highly irrational process reflecting the puzzling nature of the mind and the universe at large, where physics meets art, and cosmological beauty, horror and mystery come together.

In his work the viewer is immersed in a global stream of universal un-consciousness in which each piece contributes a still to a global narrative that investigates the place of mankind within infinity and reveals some of its essence.
