Some days ago the Italian painter Nestor wrote me an email. Attached to it he sent me some pictures of his newest paintings. After viewing them I thought: why not sharing them with you?
I know: Tastes differ…
I personally like his paintings; they are vibrant and they also reflect the passion of watchmaking and the technical side of a mechanical movement.
This is what Nestor wrote me:
My name’s Nestor Ferronato, I am one of the many followers of your blog and I’ am a painter based in Milan.
Like you, also I love watches but in a different way that you do.
I have always found a “nexus” between certain watches and certain paintings, and is not a blasphemy to said that both has the same creativity level, originality, and represent the closer point among arts and crafts: there is many art in watches and there is many craft in paintings.
In these years, I’ve been stealing their mechanical “souls”, their metallic humanity, trying to interpret their scans, complications and vibrations as if they were alive, but in the same time I wanted to make something of my own, giving them, rhythm, lines, composition and colors that highlighting their magical identity.
So, thanks to you, to your blog, I’ve decided for the first time to show someone of my works and I will be very glad to know your opinion about them.
Thanks in advance for your precious time and eventually for your suggestions.
Now I am a curious to read your opinions about Netsor´s new paintings.
Please take a close look and then let me know what you think.
