The Italian unclassifiable Italian artist Gianfranco Baruchello who mixes utopia (Cornelia agricola SPA) and energy has built with patience on several decades a revolutionary art work. Everything begins in 1959 when he decides to leave a good job in Delfino factory (Livourne, Italy) for being an artist. This choice isn't involve by the circumstances but it rather result of a meeting with the artist Roberto Matta and the art critic Alain Jouffroy. During 1959 Gianfranco Baruchello familiarizes himself with the vanguard and becomes to be a Pop Art, expressionist abstract movement and Marcel Duchamp adept. Gianfranco Baruchello will also try to bounder Duchamp by driving faster with his Ferrari towards Roma.
Gianfranco Baruchello "Appema telto il saluto a Picasso" (1963), "Exercices de style" (1962), "Vita la morte del pano" (1981 - 2014)
The Marcel Duchamp "Ready made" will play an important part inside the Gianfranco Baruchello art work and incite him to develop his own technical. For Baruchello art is a way of living and he considers each canvas as a fresco who can be pulverized by a car in many micro details like in an experimental racing car accident. Each micro details is represented by a drawing and the visitor must translate the drawings for understanding the canvas. The solution of this searching depends of the visit spirit who changes from the morning to the evening. The Gianfranco Baruchello drawings can be connected with the Nikolaus Gansterer drawings because the represent a snapshot of life.
