The photos of Nicola Brindicci of the series Gestural Minimalism testify the importance of the natural factor in the expressive poetic of this artist. Taking inspiration from a visual input, from the geometric phase of Kandinskij to Japanese art, he investigates the landscape in its smallest components, observing and selecting shrubberies, bushes and twigs covered in a blanket of snow. The nature becomes the guardian of studied wefts of the photographer’s unconscious mind. The artist, through the use of tweezers creates, just as a demiurge, some compositions to portray, minimizing the natural element. In this creative process the importance of the gestural component must be noticed. It reveals the presence of the author, not only in regards to the technical aspect but also to the content, in the juxtaposition of each part. The artistic research is twofold: on the one hand, the building of photographic images, on the other hand, the tendency to abstraction. The natural element becomes a driving force for the creation of another dimension, where the link with reality is lost, proceeding towards a progressive rarefaction of shapes, time and space. By means of polished language, but simultaneously straightforward and essential, Brindicci shows what is usual under a new light, making use of photography as a tool to disclose the most unusual correspondences of our imagination.
