Interior with Red Floor. 2022
Size: 80.0 x 100.0 cm
For Cordero, painting interiors such as this one is a meditative practice and a part of his ongoing exploration of the familiar. He turns inward, away from the chaos and unpredictable nature of contemporary life, creating an imaginary space filled with personal symbols. The aquarium and the blue armchair are recurring motifs – objects of special significance for the artist that represent a sense of balance and calm.
Matteo Cordero is a contemporary Italian artist, whose principal medium is painting. His rich and colorful paintings are means of evading contemporary society, which result in surrealistic and imaginative environments.
