The vigorous use of color by Adelio Bonacina
“Quello che cattura dei lavori di Adelio Bonacina è la profondità dei paesaggi. La natura rappresentata dal artista è ancora pulita e capace di restituire all’uomo il suo posto nell’universo, una natura dove ogni cosa è nel suo luogo pur continuando a mutare nel ciclo irreversibile vita-morte-vita.”
Anna Caterina Bellati
Adelio Bonacina has a great professional career behind him, which, starting with the drawing then moved on to oil colors and later to acrylics and mixed techniques. He first attended the art school in Merate, and then, cultivating with great care what was previously only a hobby, he managed to turn it into an occupation. The subjects of his paintings, in very sunny, warm and vivid colors, such as shades of yellow and orange, are mostly landscapes. The paintings by Bonacina propose an interesting painting that invites a personal, almost sentimental interpretation, without a doubt poetic: characteristics that Adelio Bonacina lives in his works “almost as a challenge to something interior that not even the painter knows”; “It is easy for him – still taking cue from a criticism dedicated to him – to move from a complex thin but polychrome color mix to a sort of exciting gestural research, offset by great sentiment and poetry”. It proposes works made of acrylic and a series of paintings made on ancient manuscript documents, musical scores and nautical charts.
