How interesting! A painting of a painting seen from the rear. Che bello. And what´s more, it´s got a nice big fat red sold sticker... Good Job Vincenzo.
Now I wonder if anyone would be interested in discussing the possible meaning of this work?
Why would the artist hide the actual painting from his audience? He says that it´s a non-existing painting, but would it exist if it were painted from the front? What does it mean to paint a non-existing painting? Is that statement a riddle, or a contradiction in terms?
And can painting something bring that something into existence? The painted painting - but which one is the painting? Haha...

Anyone?

Thx for the comment,
I may say that this work seems to irritate the people. Exposed during a local art competition did not even receive a notation, a friend of mine having seen the photo and thinking it was real, wrote he was glad I entered the art of installation, a friend painter told me i could spend my capabilities doing something else, another friend asked me :"WHY did you did it?".
The "NOTHING" is disturbing
