The Kitchen Table (Self-portrait). 2021
Size: 100.0 x 150.0 cm
Depicting himself as a floating head with a cheerful smile, the artist places himself within the familiar and comforting setting of the kitchen. For Cordero, this is a way to evoke an imaginary world, distancing himself from the problems and uncertainty that characterize contemporary life. Through his expressive brushwork, he captures the innocence and the jubilant spirit associated with childhood.
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.
