Description

“Roberto is always on the point of interpreting music, of grasping the key to some unknown language”, Franco Albonetti.

Roberto Papini (Ancona, 1921 – 2019) created this work, using mixed media on wood, in the 1980s. It was later named Untitled n. 3 and is part of the Museo Omero’s permanent collection.
The artist attached cardboard, metal and plastic items to a wooden board, (100 cm high and 50 cm wide), creating a real sensory experience.

He positioned the materials on the surface in a precise rhythmical pattern, where a horizontal compositional module is placed between rows of small blue plastic spheres set in metal hexagons. This module is repeated five times and is made up of 3 elements: a series of nails supporting a cobweb of metal wires, a band of “concertina-ed” cardboard and an inverted row of the nails and wires.¬†Each sequence is harmonious and balanced.
