"Andrea Filippetti is at a new turning point: his latest pictorial production affects thanks to an undefined and magical sensation of freshness, newness, brightness, spacious, luminous. Here is a new regenerating blow, an original chromatic strength, an exultant research of the light, a sum of pleasant effects, a vibration inspiegabile at the rs sight. In depth, the things that seemed the products of lots of re ned spatula strokes reveal an unexpected identity, an unprecedented technique that is experimented ad signed by the creativity of Andrea Filippetti. This new expressive style is essential to whom, like the artist, wants to express the traditional antithesis between the being and the becoming, the natured nature and the natura naturans. In the modern ages, the rhythm of life comes to coincide with the rhythm of art, in the subjective emotions of Andrea Filippetti. He gives us several artworks dedicates to the landscape in its whole aspects, especially the one rich in forms of animal and vegetable life, but also human because without it the landscape would not exists." - Gustavo Delgado
