Ettore Racca starts his artistic career in 1972. From the beginning of his activity he has always pursued a continuous and stubborn research for renewal and originality, whose main features have been reached in 1978.
His work is characterized by a diagonal vigorous sign, first informal, and then sped up and made more dynamic, vibrant and able to make shape perceptible while passing through it.
In Racca's style, Shape, first composed in its actual configuration, is then broken down and crushed through a quick, repeated sign that transfigures the Shape itself leaving its interpretation to imagination.
In 2014 Ettore Racca gave his artistic activity a radical change. In constant desire to provide answers to his creativity, resulting in the continuous research of his goal, he deeply changed the way of realizing of his works. He moved his expressionistic painting style from traditional supports to a more contemporary material. He began painting on "polycarbonate" sheet whose shape, when enlarged, recalts the image of a film, and whose weight makes it float free in the air if suitably hooked to a support.
This innovative technique allows him to fully express his pictorial dynamism which is combined with perception of movement typical of cinematic souvenirs, by giving emotion and creating suggestions on the homogeneously colored support.
Ettore Racca paints his own pictorial"frame" encapsulated within the material, in order to evoke the image of a "cinematic suggestion" which comes alive at the slightest breath of air, reflecting shapes and colors of the environment and allowing observer look at the painting from two different mirror-inverted perspectives.
• 200 * 36 em, weight 1.200 g;
• 170 * 36 em, weight 850 g;
• 150 * 36 em, weight 650 g.
This style change has arisen in April 2014 in Caselle Torinese Arena, where Ettore Racca showed with noticeable success his first works "Frames on big-sized, multicolored films".
Currently, his painting has reached a significant stylistic and emotional haven.
