Sergio Fingermann

Starting in 1975, Fingermann has been working in painting and engraving, seeking to construct a poetic universe, with strong intimist characteristics, by repeating signs, graphic annotations and memories. The pact with subjectivity, with singularity remains, however, in the paintings, the pictorial plane receives a treatment, which seeks to reveal own construction. The symbolic elements of the works merge on the surface of the painting, the gesture becomes more dramatic and space, which earlier had been treated as the place of representation, as if it were a stage, materializes like the subject of the painting itself. Once again little drawings, graphic annotations, memories arise in recent paintings; now just as evocations on the surface of the canvas, which has been transformed into a kind of territory of memories.
