"Art is over", a light art work by artist Vincenzo Mascia, stimulates a dialogue between artists in the manifestation of form and chromatic flicker. The message peremptorily inaugurates a status quo of an irreversible condition and if art is over, research and experimentation on the other hand tell us of a plurality in being. Blue, which is generally considered a cold colour because it is associated with the sea and the sky, is actually transformed by the combination with other colours, suggesting a conditioned change.
The artists CARLO D'ORTA, ELVIRA CARRASCO, MARJAN FAHIMI, GIUSY LAURIOLA, MARINA MANCUSO, KRISTINA MILAKOVIC, MONK VINCE SANGIORGIO, FRANCO PATERNOSTRO, VINCENZO MASCIA, EMANUEL ZONCATO deal with a changing hue of which we know many different shades today. Starting from Egyptian findings, passing through ultramarine blue, considered for centuries "the true blue", to the experimentation of Blue Klein IKB, a more opaque version used by the French artist in countless works, isolated and masterfully described by director Derek Jerman in the film "Blue", and finally arriving in 2009 at YinMn blue, patented under the name Blue 10G513, pure and without the addition of black and white.
