This is the theme of the recent pictorial research of De Palma, which the artist mentions Alessandra Chiusolo has defined as a set of ’emotional landscapes’. “Light and color games,” wrote Chiusolo, “enhance interior landscapes. Emotions captured, shaded, on the canvas represent through warm and cold tones endless interiority faces.
“The pictorial view of De Palma revolves around the fulcrum of abstract art intended as a pure description of moods through color, lines and shapes that are beyond the objective representation of reality. In this regard, Nietzsche said that “the human understanding is nothing more than a gimmick, a network of metaphors stitched together of our superficial impressions of the world. In their ignorance, people wrongly recognized these family metaphors for the truth. We believe we know something of the same things when we speak of trees, colors, snow, and flowers, but do not own anything but metaphors for things – metaphors that do not correspond in any way to the original subject. ” Davide unhinges precisely these metaphors. His landscapes, devoid of any tangible reference, vibrate inside the canvas as if they were the primordial visions flashbacks. His works? small windows into lost worlds. “
