About the artworkMixed technique on wood
Among the main themes in Fabio Calvettiâ€™s work, we list: absence, waiting, the deep silence of souls, empty spaces brimming with questions. In a timeless, almost theatrical context, untouched by natural lighting, lonely women seem to be listening to themselves, as if waiting for something to happen, for an answer to magically appear. Calvettiâ€™s pieces convey an irresistible sense of suspense, an atmosphere that contrasts with the frenetic intensity of daily life. This opposition is magnificently portrayed in his latest painting, where the painter chooses an external setting made up of metropolitan scenery and glimpses industrial outskirts of cities in the deep of the night.
