Sabatino Cersosimo

b 1974 Turin, Italy. Lives and works in Berlin.


Following a line that has its roots in certain expressionist painting (especially the Viennese Secession) but evolves through the modern painful mediterranean and english realism, man with his psychological complexity and relationships is the center of my interest, the man and his moods, expressed through the body and through the mind.

I paint with oil on birch wood and chip wood (of which I appreciate the compositional and textural possibilities that the structure allows itself), and on steel with the contribution of oxidation (and sometimes bitumen) obtained with water and other natural elements.

Such oxidations act on the metal through their (almost) uncontrollability, as time acts on humans, condemning him to physical and psychological decadence.
