Lorenzo Brinati – San Giovanni I

Il bianco di S. Giovanni è calce spenta seccata e ridotta in polvere, messa in un catino per otto giorni immersa nell’acqua che va cambiata rimescolando ogni giorno. Dopo questo periodo si toglie dal bagno e si fa asciugare al sole ridotta in piccoli pani: è il bianco più indicato nella pittura ad affresco. Gli antichi lo preferirono e i pittori moderni ne confermano la superiorità. Necessario è macinarlo a lungo e accuratamente affinché acquisti la necessaria intensa bianchezza.

Description

BIOGRAPHY

In Lorenzo’s Brinatis practice, we can perceive the depth of Renaissance Florentine Craftsmanship expanded by the vision towards eastern cultures. He developed the techniques for his paintings working for more than two decades as a restorator in the traditional workshops. With his pictorial works Lorenzo transforms the old master’s skills into a modern yet timeless language. As a sculptor his language derives from the attention toward the nature’s law and for the acceptance that man is at the center of universe just as observer. Lorenzo Brinati (born 1978) He currently lives and works in Florence, Italy.
