There is one thing that we do every day, every hour, every minute and every second almost without even realizing: breathing! On average are made to 13 breaths in a minute, and then multiplied by one hour is 780 breaths in a day are about 18720.
Life begins with the first breath and ends with the last, in the middle is our life. The breath is closely linked to all levels of our being.
The breath is certainly the most important symbolic act and concrete and necessary, totally connected with the concept of independent living.
This new cycle of Sanna’s paintings, leaves from mature awareness of how important the breath has in our lives. Not only technical (the pictorial action is completed through the drafting of color on the canvas by means of breaths that create fluctuating images and in constant motion) In the breath we find everything we need for development; not only the opportunity to experience the opposite, but also how to unify them, how to enter to access were deeper and deeper.
Between one extreme of non figuration and its opposite of figuration, the painting of Matteo Sanna standing there in the middle, with a freedom, a freshness and a truly amazing vitality. Where “vitality” are not to be understood only of the sign and the color mobility, energy flows and the dynamics of the forms that are still among the strong points and qualifying, immediately perceptible, the figure of his way of thinking and doing painting.
What, in fact, more vital and essential perception of living and move? Or the time and space, that is the figure or landscape? Not described, not told. But sublimated, filtered and rendered the essence of light, rhythm, flow.
The breath is the rhythmic movement that animates.
