Umberto Ciceri

Umberto Ciceri

After 25 years dedicated to exploring the visual arts, the biology of sight, the neurophysiology of perception, and the chemistry of colour, pattern, and texture, Umberto Ciceri began creating his own artworks in 2007.

Ciceri has participated in an number of Italian exhibitions, including Art Verona (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012), Miart (2009, 2010), and Artefiera Off Bologna (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012). His works were also shown at the 54th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale in the Italian Pavilion curated by Vittorio Sgarbi. In addition, Ciceri has held a series of solo exhibitions in Europe:Spin Life (Cologne, Germany; 2010), and Inevitable abstractions (Positano, Italy; 2011).

His Hypertrait artworks are built around the concept of perpetual motion like celestial mechanics, where both movement and immobility are an illusion. The optical and kinetic process of these works creates a translatory motion: the movement of the observer causes the image to move, and the movement of the image causes, in turn, the observer to move. There results an immersive motion within the depths of the perception.

Each Hypertrait experience is unique and dependent upon the precise relationship between the work and the observer, including the of number of revolutions and cycle reiterations. This relationship will always be as unique as each observer's ability to break down and reconstruct the material presented in the work.

Ciceri's trademark blurring technique is created by painstakingly breaking down the focus of each image and then reconstructing it in its elementary colour patterns, a process requiring experience and skill.

Umberto Ciceri uses lenses as a kinetic medium, "moving" in antithesis to immobility acquires an existential meaning: regeneration against stasis.
The works enhance the wonder and the hidden drama behind every provisional state of harmony, each collective state of grace.
