Sunset with the artist - Umberto Ciceri

Umberto Ciceri at Treville Positano - 9th September 2021

On September 9th, Umberto Ciceri will be the protagonist of the last appointment of Sunset with the artist, in the amazing location of Treville Positano.

After 25 years dedicated to exploring the visual arts, the biology of sight, the neurophysiology of perception, and the chemistry of colour, pattern, and texture, Umberto Ciceri began creating his own artworks in 2007. His Hypertrait artworks are built around the concept of perpetual motion like celestial mechanics, where both movement and immobility are an illusion.

The optical and kinetic process of these works creates a translatory motion: the movement of the observer causes the image to move, and the movement of the image causes, in turn, the observer to move. There results an immersive motion within the depths of the perception.

Each Hypertrait experience is unique and dependent upon the precise relationship between the work and the observer, including the of number of revolutions and cycle reiterations. This relationship will always be as unique as each observer's ability to break down and reconstruct the material presented in the work.

Ciceri has participated in a number exhibitions, his works were also shown at the 54th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale in the Italian Pavilion and at the ancient Reggia di Caserta, with a solo exhibition titled "Human Fights Rights Lights". Moreover, his works took part in many important and international Art Fairs.

His works will be the perfect conclusion of this series of event, in which the sunset has never been so enjoyable and artistic.
