Ettore Spalletti (Paolo Vagheggi, Contemporanei, Conversazioni d’artista, 2006)
"Light is very important. Like a colour is born… a painting of mine has an elaboration of nearly 20 days. Every day I find a colour… I work a paste of colours, that is quite thick, that contains pigments and chalk. Fundamentally colour is constructed on the reality of white. It is on white that I add the pigments, and I add powders to dissolve the colour. Now it is quite fun to do. Before I would always mess it up. […]
I did not know what was going to be my colour formula. It was something that I used to invent, that I felt, that I experimented… […]
This is my obsession. […] It is the pleasure to play with the colour powders, to find in what way and where can colour stop."
