My name is Ezio Ranaldi, and I am an artist, I paint beauty, colour, life, through female bodies I tell stories, events. Female figures that lay bare their dreams, their aspirations of modern, spectacular and independent women. I make ART to give shape to my dreams, they are what appears in my paintings, experiences, emotions lived or simply desired. Art is a beauty that is within us, you and I, we have the same dreams, I paint your world and my world. You are looking for irresistible and hypnotic paintings, ok, you are in the right place. You who love life and beauty as much as I do, let me know something about you, write to me - try to imagine my paintings in your home and the astonishment you will arouse, in your friends, in your woman. Always count on me.
<<... A particular note, in his studio as well as the typical smells of a workshop, you are fascinated not only by the sight but also by the hearing, because a sweet music wraps you with the notes of "Nisi dominus" by Vivaldi or "Carmina Burana" by Carl Orff or the notes of "Lucia Di Lammermur" by Donizetti, and it is just the next musical, acting and painting project the artist is working on. The show gets under way: the lights come on, the colours come to life and the characters go into action. Situations, gestures and poses like frames from imaginary films. Directed by Ezio Ranaldi. >>
Ezio Ranaldi trained as a self-taught artist, inspired by the metaphysics of De Chirico, Surrealism and Abstractionism and experimenting with different artistic techniques. He is one of the most eclectic and virtuosic Italian artists.
In the 1970s his great passion for art led him to travel all over Europe and at the same time to paint surreal and metaphysical works. His was a long journey, both geographical and mental.
Photography, in particular the transformation and processing of images into elegant figures and scenic perspectives, which he has developed by deepening his skills in digital processing in post production. In recent years he has developed such skills that he has been able to hold courses in photography and digital processing in post production.
Ezio Ranaldi creates his works inspired by photographic images captured at particular moments in the past, which may depict people who appeared for a moment in the street or met and then lost, or views of metropolitan cities, or even significant landscapes. And then they tell a story and communicate their emotions. Many creations are dedicated to female figures, muses who embody beauty but are at the same time for the artist a reflection of the representation of women in contemporary culture; from poetry, to seduction, to the object, in a labyrinth of real and surreal subjects. The works are set in a "non-place" that is striking for the contrast between the luminous geometry and the colour fields, which may be watercolour or material, and may contain material torn from reality or dreamlike elements. At times the women who emerge are enraptured and erased by elements that partly invade the space coming from the contemporary world, such as advertising inscriptions, or that seem to come from the unconscious, such as the boxes that open on mysterious masks; at other times quotations from works of art are compared with the muses represented in different eras.
Ezio Ranaldi stands out for his ability to interweave different techniques and styles, from painting to photography, from abstract to figurative, building labyrinths of spaces and surreal visions, constantly searching for new chromatic and perspective balances. He is an artist capable of creating his own expressive language with which to show his major themes linked to the human being.
His is a very expressive and convincing language with a Pop flavour that comes from the use of such elegant images that could inspire fashion magazines. The artist arouses emotions and disorientation in the spectator, making him reflect at the same time on the female figure, free and at the same time a prisoner in our contemporary world.
