Using mainly the painting technique,
meant as a digestive practice of other languages, Oscar Giaconia’s work orbits
around multiple constellations: the concepts of monster, stunt, trap and
autopsy are just some of the keywords, (reversible at the transformative
qualities of the painting medium), which have always accompanied the
diversified research of the artist, characterized by the use of synthetic
devices like silicone cases, vulcanite, nylon, para rubber, neoprene rubber.
For Giaconia „Painting“ is something not run by logic: “Painting is in the
sensation, in what goes through you just in a biological and physiological way.
Painting is as game, an expense without economy, is practising without
expecting a return, is a necessary activity, in a useless way”.
Oscar Giaconia (b. 1978) lives and works in Bergamo, Italy. He completed his studies at the
