Bright colors, so vibrant as to appear unreal. Compositions created with lines and overlapping geometries built on light. Hyper-real landscapes seem more real than reality itself. Deceptive proportions in which there is no room for man. Human figures revealed in the negative, sublimated into long shadows. Presence and absence stated at the same time. Bodies as landscapes, hills and plains with anthropomorphic contours .
These are the traits that lead immediately and unequivocally to the visual language of Franco Fontana.
