48x41 Homage to J. Vermeer with the pictorial collaboration of the artist Patrizia Pollato. Opus Nova technique. Private collection. 2017
This technique is the modern version of the ancient "Opus Sectile", well documented in the "History of Art" which takes place up to about the end of 300 AD The "pictorial" realization is obtained with a careful selection of the stone material (granite, marble, travertine, onyx, quartzite etc ...) which, when properly used, helps to create the contrasts of color, shades and backgrounds, which give depth, lightness, brightness and movement to the work.
