"Painting is talking with oneself:
between one synopsis and another there is the idea, the
brush-stroke, the being, the feeling, and it must be
immediately transferred onto the canvas."
"This sentence particularly stuck me when I
went to visit him in his studio at Pontedassio: it deeply
reflects what Marco Ferrari fixes in his oil paintings.
The artist points out the contraposition between the
conditioning reality and the suggestion, mood, impression,
thus the fascinating beyond reality. He puts into contact
the formal and precise black and white with that colour
which deeply expresses his own ego: this is clear in his
various "portraits of heart".
The painting he dedicates his own deeper thought to, the
instinctive act by which he catches the fleeting instant
striking his deep feelings, brings in to create genuine
and, in the same time, vivid images. He uses colours
which seem blending and running each other, thus fixing
the vision of his deepest sensations.
The changes of the shapes, the perception of our most
hidden reality leads to oneiric visions. The artist makes
them his own in his oils and pastels, fixing the
unconscious beyond reality by transparent colours. So the
search for an intimate oasis reaches the intentional
transgression to the too obvious visual reality. Thus it
becomes mirror of the most concealed sides of the spirit
in time development."
