Every work comes from an ancient history in a schizophrenic stratification of the world; the before and the after are hugging and unconsciously kissing for a new birth. The 22/05/05, at 17 pm, Un viso è come un fiore (The face as a flower) was born; a work of art recognized by me as illegitimate.
Maurizio Senatore didn’t attend any school of art, but felt in painting a important and expressive way forward. He started to paint when he was child and has never stopped. When he was twelve, at the secondary school, he becoms infatueted with the drawing teacher and he started to experiment throughly with different artistic techniques.
His specific characteristic: he doesn’t want to know how to paint, this creates in himself an emotional tension which tends to wonder.
On his daily bicycle trip home he is attracted by the asphalt spots. Starts the asphalt series. He works with materials such as wood, clay, iron, glass, cloth and canvas.
He discovered the way of the ciclopittura, a technique based on the relationship between raining, mud, asphalt and cycling trip. His technique are testing and researching.
He profited from the demolition of the Falconara’s bath to take possession of some centenary enameled woods with which he created some works.He wrote a fairy tale for adults entitled “The tale of choice”, in which he theorizes the impossibility for the human being to choose. This tale was read by his firstborn at the top of Angiolillo tower in Poggio Cupro.
The tale of the choice C’era un omone tutto mischiato, con una barba lungacorta, un cappello sui capelli lunghicorti, camminava un po’ avanti un po’ indietro per non andare da nessuna parte. Poi ogni tanto si fermava e nascosto dietro sé stesso, allungando la mano lungacorta, acchiappava un bambino piccolo piccolino e gli diceva: scegli un regalo, il bimbo cercando cercando dietro quel gran scatolone un solo regalo trovava, ma pure di giocare nel mondo quel solo regalo accettava. Poi venne l’autunno e l’inverno e ancora l’estate, il tempo passava ma sempre col vecchio regalo giocava.
