Oil on paper, 21x29,7 cm, Giulianova, 2020
In the series "P̶r̶o̶h̶i̶b̶i̶d̶o̶ jugar a la pelota", the rapid painting and subjects with a Lo-fi flavor evokes a fragment of life from the nineties, perhaps the very last moment before technology pervasively penetrated everyone's lives. Through this faded image, Ettorre allows us to live again the scents and emotions of that past time of which we can only now understand the value. The simplicity of an afternoon spent playing, a happy thought to take refuge in, in a world that has become too complicated.
As the author says: I like to think of this phase of my artistic research (born pictorial) as a necessary experimentation. From 2018/19 I began to feel the need to create works that are formally different from each other but united by a precise thread, the social (now synonymous with everyday life), and a common medium, sarcasm. So I started to devote myself to street art, in the form of painting as well as installations and performances. With Prohibido jugar a la pelota I decided to create a series of paintings that could represent a nostalgic thought that at that time fueled my interest: "only fifteen years ago, if they had forbidden us to go out and play in the open air and put hands a smartphone, it would have been the worst of punishments. " I reinterpreted old photos taken from my family's photographic archive, moments lived and re-proposed through a rapid and instinctive painting, "eliminating" the faces of the protagonists and making them a little like children of the new generation. Social generation in which it is increasingly difficult to find a separation between "public" and "private", between "intimate" and "shared". A distinction that is instead a fundamental aspect for the construction of one's own identity through the possibility of establishing boundaries that are the basis of the ability to get in touch, to relate.
