Gabriele D’Uva – Suspension (2004). 110 x 80 cm. Various materials, oil paint.

A man suspended in the air, wrapped in the diffusion of the world around him. Five strings hold him as laws governing the reality. The study of the painting started in 2001 and the final realization was in 2004.


Gabriele D’Uva – Essence (2003). 60 x 50 cm. Various materials, oil paint.

Everybody is influenced and shaped from the surrounding world. Everybody actively think and act. Emanating waves merge with us and originate from us. It’s the first painting in which I looked at a more dynamic and three-dimensional interpretation of diffusion.

It’s early morning and it’s cold. A man sits alone on the sea shore.

To diffuse

Gabriele D’Uva – To diffuse (1997). 60 x 50 cm. Oil on canvas.

Everything diffuses beyond its borders, remains in a given shape only momentarily. Defining “something” means to stop a continuos process in order to make it understandable. This painting represents the manifest of “Diffusionism”.
Looking at a plant in a pot, I started seeing, even if in a limited way, the absurd plot of causes that is behind each existing object.


Gabriele D’Uva – Thought (1997). 50 x 70 cm. Oil on canvas.

The light diffuses and its diffusion gives shapes and colors to objects. I painted a candle, sign of light par excellence, but also sign of this new intuition.
