About The Artwork

The inspiration came from the water, from the challenge to represent the movement of water and, finally, to transfer feelings via a figurative work. the challenge in this work is the representation of the movement of the man entering the water, by depicting the transparency and the transparency of water displaced by the feet, represented from a underwater perspective, of a surrealistic and impressive viewpoint. The medium is chosen to depict the reflection and the movement of water. "Terdich's painting rises to the rank of masterpiece in the context of hyperrealism contextualizing each of his works among the best creative expressions in this field. What characterizes and differentiates every work by Paolo Terdich is the ability not to limit himself to the excellent technical ability, the painter enters in every brushstroke all the tension necessary to make us go beyond the visible and to arrive in the world of emotions, a unique and extraordinary experience”. (A. Moioli)

Born in Piacenza (Italy), where, after having lived in various Countries, I currently live and work, I am in a constant creative challenge to make tangible in my paintings the human feelings. My works were exhibited worldwide and have been acquired by numerous private collectors, galleries, art institutions. In 2022, I have been invited to exhibit at the 59th Biennale Arte di Venezia, in the Granada National Pavilion, and I had a solo exhibition in New York. Some of my works won numerous international prizes and my activity has been reviewed and published in various art magazines and books. I am also a co-founder of the artist group “Eoykos”, composed by six Italian artists of figurative expression. This Movement was created (in 2011), to eventually demonstrate, in equilibrium between Surrealism and Metaphysics, that figurative art is still a privileged mean of communication, aimed at transmitting human emotions. My favorite subjects are human figures represented in situations of intimacy and solitude, in metaphysical and surreal atmospheres, both in confined environments, where their inner torment is expressed, and in aquatic environments, from which a profound sense of quiet emerges. The aim is to render detailed figurative subjects, characterized by luminous surfaces and compelling images that offer a combination of disquiet, uncertainty, urgency, calm, and spirituality. Meditative in tone, I also try to exalt the light, to obtain paintings pervaded by uncommon atmospheres and shot with an evanescent brightness. Although my works are often associated with hyperrealism, I am not particularly interested in the mere representation of the real. My expression is aimed, instead, at recreating atmospheres that lead beyond the visible, to penetrate the inner world of emotions. Accordingly, the figures, rather dynamic, are suspended in a surreal atmosphere, with a post-impressionistic dim light. My realism is, hence, silent, intimate, containing an unspoken, mysterious narrative, which offers psychologically loaded presentations. This atmosphere has been, finally, emphasized in the works “waters”, where natural light and filtered light breaks the subjects in a multitude of dynamic reflections. Within such balance, the human beings seem to live in a precarious balance that belongs to peace, harmony and beauty.
