artist statement

lorenzo taini works in various different medias such as painting, installation and works on paper. besides his use of acrylic and watercolours he also makes use of less classical materials such as thread, markers and sand. with a great love of minimalism, repetition is a keyword in his practice. in the repetition of a sign does the repetition prevail or does the sign itself prevail? his interest lies in the ordering in lines, in series, and creating sequences with a continuous persistence. the canvases are painted by stratification and a simplicity of gestures that draw themselves, translate themselves into lines and signs, seams and points, with no other goal than that of measuring the infinity of repetition – such as the repetition of time and space.
