A good day / Henrey Moore - Renato Settembre

Renato Settembre

For a long time I believed, I did not know or did not want to know what painting is.

In many of my paintings you can find abstract motives and part of figures. Draft faces but also bodies and objects. It could be, that these forms tell you some kind of stories. They would be not interesting stories.

I would like to draw an entire body, but a foot can be enough. I do not know if these interruptions and changes of mind have something to do with the need to be certain and determined in what I am doing.

I do not feel in the best place to judge my own work—I like it a bit too much. Perhaps that is, because the criteria with which I judge it are so different from the ones I use when I am making. And those criteria do not last very long.
