Thinking nature
1980s: Thinking nature
A critic wrote that each phase of Lucatello’s painting justified the one before. Indeed, it is so: one must just catch hold of the string that knots itself during this fascinating adventure, and then one realises that the gap between one ‘period’ and another is just apparent. The artist’s dialog with nature and his psychological research into the relationship between man and nature are continuous and coherent. Even though these paintings could be put down as non–representational abstractionism, they are really just “patches” drenched in light; as we always see them, that move in space with deliberate timing. Of course, they are lyrical too. It’s poetry.
