Mario Lampazzi was born on 29 October 1954, son of Giuliano di Roma and of the countryside. Until the age of twenty-two, he led an isolated life devoted full time to pastoralism. A fleeting visit to the town from time to time and always lived with a sense of oppression and fear towards sociality. At the beginning of the 80s he began drawing erotic comics and animal subjects, mainly goats that he realized during the daily activity of shepherd. The works shown here are related to the decade at the turn of the ’80s and’ 90s during which Mario began writing poetry and creating wooden sculptures. After an initial approach with a pencil and some pastel and stimulated by the first appreciations he receives for his creations, he moves on to oil painting on canvas. If we were to give it a “conventional” artistic position, we could say that the sueprime creations tend to Realism, consequently Expressionism and Surrealism wrap themselves and mix together to finish in their paintings. The canvases are made with a very personalized color spreading technique, outside of the academic techniques. Another peculiarity is the extremely fast execution that allowed the artist to capture the sensation of the moment: as if to photograph his emotions. Some of his paintings have been painted during village parties where Mario was at the same time an integral and isolated part of social life: sitting on the step of a door he took part in the party but isolated himself from everyone by thinking, painting.
