Alessandro Zenok’s “crossing the line paintings” are characterized by a very distinctive chromatic sensitivity which makes it very difficult to categorize them in a final and critical way.
Although his training was mostly concerned with Aerosol art, Zenok’s last works show, however, few traces of that technique. He has evolved and concentrated instead on focusing research on the figurative micro-mark on canvas, rather than wall graphic macro-mark.
Mostly, but not exclusively, he pays attention to the female body, and sometimes discovers new shapes. These become part of his previous creations and convey a blatant and vibrant sensuality as well as showing a refined and spontaneous facial deformity.
Therefore, the female body doesn’t disclose but reveals something, it doesn’t declare but suggests something. Besides, these female bodies are sometimes meant to convey a meaning through the use of colours. The artist combines them in a way that expresses joy as well as a certain energy. In so doing, the observer gets close to the painting and is at once touched emotionally.
In his last art production entitled “Brigitte mie”, each painting represents a triumphant woman: showing-off and uninhibited, enchanted and disenchanted, but never natural because unreal. This is what Zenok’s unlimited imagination suggests apart from revealing, through the use of his spray colours, his very distinctive kind of rebellion and freedom. (Katia Olivieri)
