L’attesa delle regole, Lettera al padre and Il sospetto are three small paintings produced in 2013 by Manuele Cerutti, a Turinese artist who ever since his academy years has chosen painting as his sole means of expression. His works, small in size and with a limited palette of colours, are meagre representations of apparently insignificant everyday objects. Nails, ladders, spoons, rocks, jars and gardening tools are portraits abandoned in some corner of his studio, against a background lacking in details and which is lost in the neutral tones of greys and browns. Abstracting them from their original context, the artist manages to give shape to suspended visions that reject the concepts of time and space and the scale ratio chosen to reproduce them.
