DIEGO VALENTINUZZI

“All my pictorial production, of about 30 years of activity, represents a visionary reflection in proceeding by symbols and allusions, where my works can be defined as a stage of meditation from which the presence of classical images and in some cases a numerology come to light not casual, in a decorative synthesis.” (Diego Valentinuzzi)

 

“Practically the fusion between reality and dream is also expressed in the free combination of different materials, which reproduce dreamlike contents and unconscious visions.

Symbolic figures, combined with pop and optical suggestions, complete the sources of inspiration by making the allusive effect grow, the idea of the past that joins the present in a single temporal dimension, where everything becomes above all a key of investigation. Practically the universe is that of the dream, the story of the dream.

These are moments that arise from the experience of the lived or the imaginary, therefore: not a new tragedy, but a serene comedy of the unconscious.” (Diego Valentinuzzi)

 

RIFLESSIONI E CRITERI SULLA MIA ARTE
“Nei miei dipinti…mi piace pensare…che chi gli osserva si trovi innanzi a delle storie
fantastiche dove ognuno può attingere a qualche suggestione nascosta, dimenticata dalla memoria. La mia pittura, per la maggior parte, potrebbe sembrare  anche una pittura estetizzante ma se osserviamo tra le “righe” apparirà consapevolmente tutt’altro che “leggera”  la sua collocazione …potremo definirla…è di  un senso di muto disincanto come se questi lavori appartenessero a un mondo futuro dove l’uomo con c’è più, scenari silenziosi, memorie di assenza coinvolgono l’osservatore attento, dove tutto o quasi tutto si è già consumato, una sorta di palcoscenico di meditazione un rituale di morte tra creazione artistica e realtà dove nulla è lasciato all’improvvisazione.
Dunque io la definirei una risposta estetica alla dilagante dittatura delle immagini tecnologiche e la volontà di ribadire i diritti della pittura che oggi sono sempre più soffocati delle visioni computerizzate.” (Diego Valentinuzzi)

Diego Valentinuzzi, (born on 2nd October 1953 at Monfalcone) painter and contemporary Italian art curator who lives at Monfalcone took part to two events of the Biennal of Venice in 2009 and 2013.
After attending the three-year course at the “State High School for Arts and Craft”, his artistic career began in 1974 when he met the Roman painter Giordano Giurina who convinced Valentinuzzi to pay him several visits to the capital city of Rome until 1976. Here he studied fine art and chromatology-the study of colour. Then going back to his birth town, he constantly worked together with art and design studios making a tromp l’oeil, various decorations for American bars, discos, cruise liners. It was essential for him to have met different gallerists who have publicized his works through television auctions promoting his works all over Northern Italy.
Moreover, for about twenty years, Valentinuzzi has been collaborating to promote and exhibit the works by artists from the Friuli Venezia Giulia in Venice at the art galleries of the Scoletta San Zaccaria and the Old Palace of Prisons in Venice.
He has also collaborated with the art critic Vito Sutto for the television programme “Il segno e il colore” (The sign and the colour) broadcast on Telefriuli Channel.
Among the most important exhibitions, we have to remember his presence at the 53rd Biennal of Venice curated by Daniel Birnbaum and the 55th Biennal with the art direction of Massimiliano Gioni.  In the last edition The Biennal dedicated a full page to this artist on the general catalogue.
