CRITICS

The painter’s poetical world is the symbol of a fertile song, but also a stage of happy presences, though human beings are absent. Luigi De Giovanni searches faith, a spiritual meaning. He’s an artist who feels a desire to regard canvases as pages of an endless diary, because nature’s particular and messages have no end. He feels the necessity to bring to ligth all the answers to man’s existential anxietis. In De Giovanni’s compositions the trees are the archetype that transforms itself into poetic imagination, exalted in forms referable to reality, Luigi De Giovanni choose very few themes to communicate his enlightements that reveal their meaning like intimate exclamations. His post – impressionist intimism lives through the necessity to catch on to the absolute and observes the static nature of landscapes, as something definite and everlasting.             Paolo Levi
