”Usually the symbolic layers overlapping the portraits account for the mixture of languages, culture and identities that exist in our societies. Stars for me are also somehow speaking about dreams, sometimes future projections or the past.
It does not have one meaning but I use them to have another layer with symbolic meanings that each can add to the artwork, I like to think that they are like a layer of thoughts, or language, and also sometimes just a decorative element.” – Guido Palmadessa
“Nelle mie opere di solito gli strati simbolici che si sovrappongono ai ritratti spiegano la mescolanza di lingue, cultura e identità che esistono nelle nostre società. Le star per me in qualche modo parlano anche di sogni, a volte di proiezioni future o del passato.
Non ha un significato ma li uso per avere un altro strato con significati simbolici che ognuno può aggiungere all’opera d’arte, mi piace pensare che siano come uno strato di pensieri, o linguaggio, e talvolta anche solo un elemento decorativo.“ – Guido Palmadessa
