Antivegetativa by Davide D’Elia

Italian artist Davide D'Elia produces work that often re-values modern aesthetic graphic terminology by presenting itself beyond object and objectivity (which are nevertheless important symbols), by which he obtains a reasoning that examines the concepts of time and the flow of time. Artist's last artwork is Antivegetativa (antivegetative, the name in Italian of anti-fouling paint). D’Elia scoured antique shops, flea markets and old cellars to find the furniture and paintings that were then dipped in “Tiffany blue”. In a statement about his work, Davide D'Elia says: "Antivegetativa’ is an experiment in halting nature’s physicality, as well as the passing of time."
