Gianfranco Baruchello pittore

Gianfranco Baruchello is an Italian artist whose work can be defined as a painting of denunciation, since he closely observes the avant-gardes of the period but decides to innovate them through your own vision of life. Born on 24 August 1924 in Livorno. The father is simultaneously a lawyer, professor at the University of Pisa and director of the city's Industrial Union, while the mother is a primary school teacher.
After the war, Gianfranco Baruchello graduated in Law to follow in his father's footsteps and in 1947 began working at Bombrini Parodi Delfino.
In 1949 he began dedicating himself to the creation of the chemical company Biomedica, an activity which he continued successfully until 1955, before turning his attention completely to literary and figurative art in 1959.
What inspired him in this sense was the Parisian climate that he encountered while visiting the city and meeting important artists such as Roberto Matta and Alan Jouffroy.
In 1962 he met Marcel Duchamp, in 1964 John Cage in New York, who invited him to explore the new frontiers of abstract impressionism and pop art. The American experience ends with the creation of the canvases Other traces, which show black stripes that show the interior trouble of the artist and of modern man, grappling with technological innovations and with a society that tends to exclude rather than include.
Worthy of note is his participation in the New Realists exhibition held in New York in 1962 and organized by Pierre Restany, in which artists such as participated. t19>Schifano, Festa and Rotella.
Gianfranco Baruchello's production appears to be rather autonomous from the early years, although the influence of the avant-gardes that followed one another throughout the 1900s is still noticeable. For this reason, in 1963 he decided to inaugurate his own exhibition at the Galleria La Tartaruga in Rome, where he elaborated his philosophy based on fragments, miniatures and large white canvases full of apparently random writings and geometric lines. The references are aimed at a society that tends towards consumerism and excessive haste, immediately throwing away the products just purchased to always buy new ones.
He is also intrigued by the world of television, which he reproduces with subtle references on large surfaces, using slogans and symbols to show how empty the reality of the small screen can sometimes appear.
The 1960s were a time of great turmoil, as the author also decided to launch himself into the cinematographic world, creating over the years Molla, The Zero Degree of the Landscape and Verifica incerta . With the waste materials he created a series of works, created with pieces of film mounted together. There is no lack of a large production of literary texts, which fully reflect his vision of the world and make it understandable even to the public of loyal admirers.
In 1973 he founded the Cornelia Farm right on the outskirts of Rome. Its aim is to expand and also incorporate the adjacent land, saving it from building speculation in a perspective that recalls the currently rampant one of a sustainable enterprise on a natural level. He therefore elaborates an interesting reflection on the relationship between man, agricultural product and artistic product, participating materially in the management of the activity and theorizing some interesting economic laws that are still valid today.
This experience led him to paint paintings relating to the territory, which he exhibited in an exhibition at the Galleria di Milano, giving a famous interview of which unfortunately only the answers remain.
At the end of the 1980s the company was dismantled and in its place Gianfranco Baruchello proposed the Il Giardino project, which in 1989 he presented at the Festival Voci sull'acqua di Spoleto , where he engages in a performance taking care of a small Gingko Biloba bonsai.
The aim was to underline how the garden of the mind must always be nurtured and treated with the utmost respect.
In 1998 he created the Baruchello Foundation in his previous home on the hills of the capital and in 2011 an anthological exhibition was dedicated to him at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome.
He has received numerous awards, including the one at the Deichtorhallen Sammlung Falckenberg in Hamburg or the nomination of artist of the year 2016 by Radio 3.
