Carmine Capone






The Art of Carmine Capone ..... is a continuous search.
Carmine Capone and 'born Dec. 20, 1959 in Sant'Arpino, the province of Caserta in Italy, where he lives and works


"The pictorial gesture of Capone gives color to an art that is free voice of inspiration, creativity, revealing indeed as the quintessence of human interiority. His compositions, from those early days to the present day are happy testimonies of a pictorial result - creative deeply researched and strongly supported and that, from a state of mind, develops images, emotions and stories through the skillful description of the movement , sign and color. Shines in them a strong desire to open up the immensity of life, to live with emotionally charged here is that the multitude of inner impulse determines the countless endless brushstrokes. The explosion of color is the mirror of the soul of Carmine Capone. "
Elpidio Iorio, journalist

John Corduas, critic and president of "Napoli Nostra"
"Carmine Capone: Artist who loves experimentation, begins with a figurative language and traditional techniques to arrive at different forms of expression, which use mixed media, including collage. Capone enters the maze more complicated processing techniques and composition, reaching a pictorial customized.
In his later works have wide predominance colorings, full of light and lyrical, making the workings of the impact and easy translation, transposing emotions lives. Also striking are its color choices based on the juxtaposition of cold colors, almost glacial, and solar hot Mediterranean tones.
His landscapes are places where the viewer finds peace and balance, the soul places that create an atmosphere full of charm.
Warm colors and the romantic tone, sometimes melancholy, permeate the paintings of this artist who, both in his landscapes, both in its figures, expresses a covert search of the truth. "

Giovanni Mazzetti, critical
"The work of Carmine Capone showed a great passion for art, profuse in an original vision of issues of wide resonance and human ethics, which he reworks with vibrant expressiveness, in the belief that the aesthetic effectiveness is mighty mission refining intellect and illuminates life, directing it to the wisdom.
His paintings offer images and characters of everyday life, emblems of a conception of existence marked by universal values, blended with the sagacity mutations emotional soul.
Truly inspired artist, his style blends a lively perception of objectivity and thrills interiority vaulted interpreted with surreal tension, which collects the echo of dreamlike vibrations.
Always gives great importance to the human figure, the synthesis of feelings and reflections on the meaning of life, taking the characters in environments effectively related to content, reconstructing fantastic shots, where the actual shapes are woven representations
imagination, in a complex architecture of tight rhythms of color, very varied in the choice of timbres and tones. "

Luigi Fusco, critical
"The pictorial research Carmine Capone is developed through two specific genres: figurative and abstract. These two trends have characterized, and still result in the production of the painter native of atellana.
The landscapes of Capone, both local and international, are characterized by a romantic vision of reality, greatly enhanced by a sudden coloristic vigorous and expressive. The execution of architectural forms and natural suffers from genuine impulses; they are violent brushstrokes that, at the same time, define a sense of tranquility and inner peace.
The simultaneity of events is manifested through the author's personal feeling: the lyrical Capone is directly proportional to its pictorial, is immersed in the vision of everyday life, representing every aspect of the human being.
His other works can be easily placed against the informal experiments, I am referring in particular to the work The flight, Matter and the North West, which says the experience of informal artists of the fifties of the last century. In his other productions the structure of the composition is marked by the presence of vertical marks, but equally some creations are characterized by horizontal hatching on a vertical surface. Fields of color constitute atmosphere, a dimension, which have nothing of everyday reality. The framework thus becomes a testimony completely '' other '', an open window on a transcendent world.
The artist goes from the traditional to the most modern techniques; also it makes use of mixed media, including collage. As for the shade there is a prevalence of colors cold, almost glacial, made for combinations dominated by ochres, oranges and blues. Similarly, the artist juxtaposes in his still warm colors and exquisite Mediterranean.
Capone means the lamp almost in a sense and contemplative religious, making it become the protagonist of his deepest color research.
The search for Carmine Capone moves along an arc stretching from figurative painting to abstraction Sironi Pollock ''.

Rosario Pinto, critic and author of the monograph "The artistic research of C. Capone"
"The Art of questions about life and - especially in its more contemporary mode of expression - has learned to talk things, discovering in the matter of the existing significant node. Speak so the walls, the expanse of the heavens, the intimacy of objects altered in its poignancy of things and taken to phantasmic emblems of a reality that seems to transcend them.
The contemporary artist can grasp very well the vibration of existence, and this is revealed in the painting Carmine Capone, who moves from a commitment to return the real to reach a disarticulation of the object reduced empirical fragments and splinters of darting materiality .
Touching sun on distant seas, echoes of lush vegetation and valuable were the first points of orientation painting Capone, painting already now revealed as the mature fruit of an intelligent and wise awareness technique, not far from preziosismi formal, expressive gems of an atmosphere and an environment. As the river landscapes, sunsets scorched, the vivid scenes of nature are diluted in dilated horizons of the sea and the
picture becomes the juxtaposition of the backgrounds of sky and sea, crossed by flèche darting the horizon line.
Then, after a while ', everything falls apart and painting Capone takes to relax at times, a very brief background paintings, with brushstrokes double and thickened, sfibrando clean the unity of its landscapes in most previous flaked compositions. And 'yet its landscape, are still tropical sunsets, yet the masses of water of the sea, but gradually on the images of distant realities spreads and spread the jelly of the mind, the jumble of thoughts.
The very titles of the works in the succession of the years between the declining nineties and the first five-year period of 2000 reveal in fact the processes that mounts from Sunset and Alba, in Nature, in Freedom, and then to the Earth Essence to arrive at the Beyond the Universe 2005, preceded by Reflections in 2004, where the pictorial material that is as expressive instrument, to limit the monochrome, to dictate a real geometrical synthesis. This does not prevent our own, in these same years, already versed in the new century, come back in some way to the reference figurative: in Secrets, a painting of 2003, shows the human representation, mode and credited the so-called "half-length" , preceded by some intensive tests naked, such as Naked Fire of 2002, 2001 and Nude Nude with water in 2000. deserves interest, also, again as part of the creation that turns her best interests to referentiality objective, the reading decidedly landscape of some paintings as Amalfi, or stacks, or as Borgo Antico, which depicts the profile overlooking the old center of Sant'Agata dei Goti. Defies logic "landscape", finally, a group of paintings, among which 11 September and Dawn of the towers, which examines the story of the terrorist attacks in the heart of the metropolis New York in 2001.
The image, in short, enjoying increased significantly the artist. This is certainly not return "figurative" that can awaken us wonder: it not only leaves behind the result of new research in the meantime tried but it explores the opportunities for expression in a test case challenging. In fact emerge from these tests two references constructive Capone has embraced. The relationship with the material, as seen in its essential substantial and informal, and scanning linearistica that becomes free radiation vector. Recall, to give reason for this process, works as Materia 2003, of light and net thickness informal, testifying affinity with Flight 2006 in which the densification material expresses the tension vector delibata widely in works such as Obstacles and North West 2005 and then astral Landscape, Landscape A2, Face and Arctic, all of 2006 and in Victoria in 2003, a work in mixed media and collage highly focused on enforcement procedure tonal.
There is, in short, a strong Capone constructive tension: it is certainly manifested in full and total relationship with things, failing to make it in this way not only their faces but the warp and logical structure, their essence. On the basis of these considerations it is possible to enroll solutions abstract - Capone's material in a process of continuity with reality, as transposition of the phenomenal datum surface in a burst of expression by nature to Matter.
Historiographically there is indeed a long tradition of our region in this sense:'ll do the work of Spinosa, its informal beginnings in the early fifties and quell'irrinunciato relationship with reality that is connoted of anthropological elements as in the famous archetype machine sewing. Forte is the reference parallel to the painting of Eduardo Palumbo and its sensitivity of composition and color that have revealed important new landing research abstract informal.
This timely opportunity to labeling and recognition of arrays - which we define here without fear "ancestral" - allows us to read the work of Capone in the correct perspective of a journey that has well-springs important and far.
