Adelaide Cioni

Bologna, IT, 1976

In Adelaide Cioni’s work, color bursts forth and strikes us: it is a body-color that incarnate in a form, becomes volume, surface or threshold and fills up the space. The display follows the same rule, it saturates the room and offers body to body contact (in this understanding of the relation between work, space, spectator, the legacy of Pascali, more than that of Novelli and Merz, is made evident).

Flat and matte on paper, this modern color squeezed straight from the tube summoned to fill the simple  – and happy – shape of an ice cream, surprises in the way it evokes a fresco: this pink that fills a nondescript ice cream cone form is Giotto’s pink,  Piero della Francesca’s rose. Because this shape in front of me is so banal and featureless, I see it not as subject but instead as vehicle, the means of color in all its seductiveness.
