Michael de Kok / Giorgio Morandi



Giorgio Morandi
Natura Morta
1964
 
Morandi paints like no other, before or since. His brushstroke is in complete philosophical agreement with the subject, the scale and the color of his paintings. It is expressive, though it is modest, and not so expressionistic as to disturb the sense of meditative silence that inhabits all his paintings. He is timeless yet vital, timorous and seemingly threatened by something outside, yet determined and stoic in will to be. To be human. To stand noble, modest and resistant to the violence of the world.
