Paintbrush placed on the ear tells of a break at work. Canvas, once again, is the shroud of a painter. A relic delivered to unknown persons and that safeguards a snippet of time: the obscenity  of the self-portraits is this unveiled instant. The artist directs his gaze to a trascendent time, populated by those not yet born. © Graziano Spinosi
