For Stefano Minzi, printmaking, artist books, installation and oil painting are cardinal elements of his artistic work. Minzi addresses a critical perspective on our socio-political reality, whilst simultaneously referencing his own worldly and dream-like interpretations. Minzi recalls that ever since he was a child, he has reserved for reality an incredulous and wild-eyed look — a look that he relates to that of the protagonist in Jean-Paul Sartre’s novel, La Nausée, who looks at his own hand with such incredulity that he finds it separate, yet inescapably tied, to himself. Minzi’s artistic practice represents an attempt to give a value to that which constitutes a lack of perception — of looking at life as if in an alien or unfamiliar world. Through this perspective, Minzi claims the role of ‘artist-magician’, bearing a dialogue with matter through which the work becomes a piece of evidence — a foot print, or a residue, of this practice. In printmaking, Minzi finds an alchemical practice that transforms matter into symbol in an expressive form that suitably embodies his interests in transforming and shifting perspectives, one where figures and subjects are at once there and present, but never quite precisely defined.
