Past: Vittorio Brodmann

"By turning the painting into an accumulation of 'Brodmann moments' (in a cave-painting/graffito mode) Brodmann compositionalizes his semio-capital, transmuting it into information, into a field of redirects failing to place it anywhere, turning it into painting as a recursive field, allowing to renege on the artist task of 'be Brodmann' while being Brodmann."

"for Brodmann style is suspended in the dispersed particles of its past participants, in the soup of its references, closing in on the liquify setting of its blender. Brodmann’s an 'artist to watch' dissolve the darker edges of his earlier characters into its broth of tasteful painting"
