ESQUISSES DE PAYSAGE
«ESQUISSES DE PAYSAGE» is an important theme in the work of Swiss painter Carlo Aloe (1939, lives and works in Basel) which he started already in the Seventies. The multilayered paintings represent the artist’s very personal testimony of our world. His formal vocabulary is based on his sketches – which capture the turmoil of everyday life – which he then uses to create the pictorial compositions by layering characters and ornaments and more above each other. Carlo Aloe attempts – in his own words – to capture everyday life in a timeless space and to render it in a harmonized balance.
