ACME ArtBOARD #8: Tiziano Ronchi

ACME ArtBOARD is a column created to bring the public closer and provide a new approach to contemporary art, involving young and emerging artists who, by telling each other about themselves, reveal their personal way of being Artists.

The medium used is a moodboard, a series of images joined together as in a collage that show in a visual format a project and all the elements related to it, anticipated by a short interview.

The artists have made themselves known starting from their studies and arriving to their future aspirations, creating a composition in which their creative ideas, the materials related to them and the tools of doing are shown. Each artist interprets the moodboard in an original and unique way, providing the reader with new scenarios useful to understand the meaning of being an Artist at 360 degrees.

ACME – What motivated you and why to start your studies/career as an artist?

TR – What pushed me to undertake this career that I would better define as “life approach” has been, since I was a child, the exaggerated need to concretize through a visual, palpable, material medium, that whirlwind of emotions and sensations that, with the passing of the years, has become more and more stormy and dense.

It is an emotional storm that springs directly from the visceral contact with Nature, intended both as a context and as a guiding Entity, which since the early years of my life has been an essential and generating presence. The other flame of ignition of this emotional flow, which increasingly needs to manifest itself and become physical, is the other human being, as a companion, as a mirror, as a channel to discover the deeper self.

Making art has therefore been a necessity from the beginning, to give a name to these elements that move something strong inside me and therefore to discover myself, but also to tell and spread to the world what the contact with the two figures at the heart of my research and my life is able to generate.


ACME – What are your aspirations for the future?

TR – The aspiration for the future is to spread as much as possible such messages-emotions through this inquisitive language of beauty, discovering and learning to exploit all the facets and potentialities of this code as tools to graft in the world sprouts of ideas for a fuller and more harmonic life.

Art is a medium capable of generating solid input and tearing apart rooted ideas that, if well used, can prove to be one of the most effective tools for communicating and communicating. This implies a great responsibility for anyone who has the precious opportunity to shape it, to leave a Sign, a well-marked Trace in the Self, of the Self and the Other.

My greatest aspiration is to make art an all-round element in my life and to collaborate intensively with other artists and with the various figures of the art system, to contribute to enrich and spread this powerful and fascinating language, letting myself be permeated also by the Traces of the Others for a continuous evolution.

The Trace is the most tangible sign of a passage, a process, a path, an emotion experienced privately or arising from the encounter and fusion with the Other and with Nature.

The Trace is the fulcrum of an approach to life that is incessant research, that is a meditative path, that is a continuous journey within oneself and in a world where Nature and human beings intertwine, clash, decompensate and balance.

Trace is interpenetration understood as ‘con – fusion’ between the human element and the natural element, contamination of linguistic spheres and different materials in relation to natural laws and social and individual balances. Compenetration is visceral exchange, sexuality: need to leave an Imprint, germinative origin, pure Nature.

Trace is imprint, that is the need to mix and mark oneself with the Other and Nature itself. The work is an imprint because it is an important physical presence, involving the viewer in a profound exchange with matter and Trace, between experience and knowledge.

Trace is cataloguing, as an evisceration of the “emo – sensations” aroused by the relationship with the Other and with Nature, and an attempt – a will to trace a scala naturae, the result of the artist’s personal experience, a generative osmotic filter between the world and his intimate feeling. This implies the assumption of a great responsibility in the restitution to the Other.

This continuous “tracing” translates into the spasmodic search for a serenity, an inner balance, which would like to find a re-connection between a world more and more tied to “doing” than to “feeling”, and the contact with the intimate emotionality of the Other and with Mother Nature. This is understood both as a context but also as a generative source and an integral part of every human being, which leads to the rediscovery of the Self and to understand the importance of sharing with the Other.

Trace is also the unconscious need to leave signs in the world, as an element of eternal survival but also as a medium to tell the story of the importance of connecting with Nature to find oneself and discover the Other. Traces that would like to become physically less and less palpable but that remain deeply engraved in the world; just like the Traces, almost invisible but with a clear semantics, of Richard Long’s paths and the subtle but powerful sounds of Pink Floyd’s Pulse.
