nearer to the contemporary world of art. |
He performs works on square, rectangular, oval, trapezoid, etc.. surfaces,
giving sense to the very forms and dimensions of the matter that welcomes
the creative process. This process begins from a conscious path that
develops within the form and the surrounding space, then, lead by the
unconscious, flows to absolute freedom.
The surface grows richer with signs, colours, punctuations that change
their forms. Papasso works spontaneously, letting himself go under and
above the stimuli of rational inventi- veness. When his «plant»
has reached its full growth, he stops working and waits trustingly for
the emersion of art values, the fruit that could be reaped by anyone.
His work is alive and displays itself to onlookers who may react to
dissonances and reject the energy it emits. Perhaps they fear novelties
because they dare not abandon their familiar, reassuring and taken for
Onlookers, however, may become empathetic, they are bewildered and
listen to the calls ringing out to them, which provoke sympathetic vibrations
of affinity and similitude. So irreality gains an ancient reality, deep
inside nature and the human condition.
