All Eyes On: Riccardo Pacitti

About the artist

Riccardo Pacitti is an Italian multi-disciplinary artist who utilizes assemblage of found objects and unconventional materials to explore all the shades of his inner world. He finds expression mainly through basically a deep dialog with the materials; highlighting the unexpressed beauty of found object in its most natural, aged and ruined form, without altering its uniqueness.

Working on emotional and introspective dynamics; whether they are the most ephemeral like a beautiful dream about to fade away or more profound like an intimate personal reflection on life itself.

“My ideas rising where thoughts are whispered by the unconscious”

Artist Statement

My process begins with a simple walk on the beach or on the bank of a river which transforms into something extraordinary from a sensory point of view; I’m literally attracted by the object that will be one of the future pieces that will make up my work. At that point my mind clears and I can find what I need; I know where to find them, they whisper to me; that is, it is no longer me who seeks but they who come to me, from there a process of continuous connection begins shortly thereafter. Indulging to their suggestions, waiting them to tell me what they want to be in their future life; experimenting, playing, giving them the opportunity to suggest precise execution methods.

Each artwork I create is a long and deep process of contemplation, introspection, and daydreaming; some are complete within moment while others require much more time and reflection, always exposed to constant change. For me, the whole process behind the creation of the work of art is much more experientially significant than the final creation itself, is the most important aspect of creating art. An important aspect of my process is the tactile experience of working with materials; textures, surfaces and shapes, over time they also advise precise ways to make my work progress in certain directions.

The unicity and unrepeatability of the works is possible thanks to my mood of an exact moment and the uniqueness of objects, impossible to duplicate. They represent a juxtaposition between sensations and emotions, made physical through the assemblage of found materials, which they carries its own life experiences whit them. Sensations that never remain the same from start to finish, they change, evolving over time with me, sometimes leaving the artwork itself whitout a certain end, incomplete.
