In the series Energies Pablo Contrisciani’s paintings are the representation of different kind of moods altogether inside of one frame. They have an intense and sensual sense of unity. The shapes had color that was partly knocked down, but mostly electric, and they were improvised and spontaneous but at the same time precise.

The paintings play between these two elements: shape and color. Sometimes they merge, and sometimes there is a tension between them. This play in tension between pictorial surfaces and applied materials creates complex and straightforward layers of expressive abstractions. These series of paintings unifies oppositions and energizes a blend of rational and emotional notions. They juxtapose humble elements with big gestures and make references to pop culture, to spiritual narratives and to some historical concepts.
