Stefano Bonazzi - Smoke
Stefano Bonazzi is a digital artist from Ferrara, Italy. Stefano employs a unique combination of techniques from charcoal drawing, digital photo editing, and photography to produce his works.
“All my work is infused with the prospect of life as a snub, a disillusioned and cynical vision that leads me to concentrate on the negative aspects of things. This way I look at reality, however, does not want to be a disenchantment end in itself, but rather an alternative viewpoint to spread niceness and false constituent of the bottom of our society. My creative path winds through the representation of states of mind tormented, but never definitive.”

By pure chance I came across Gerhard Demetz and his outstanding wooden sculptures and couldn’t leave them alone. Childhood innocence mixed with so much bitterness, that is what intrigues and scares me both at the same time. Nevertheless I find them extremely beautiful.
My first association with his work is the impact of war on children and people in general, which is because of the objects they carry (e.g. scissors, gas mask) as well as the way they are dressed (boots, ties, gloves and military style clothing/uniforms). In addition to this, other objects like a sleigh, water wings or several toys appear to be a violent contrast, because they accentuate once again pure childishness and look to me like remnants of a bygone time. On second thought, it might be loss of childhood in general, which may have different deep-set causes and which is expressed drastically through these postures, facial expressions and objects.
These sculptures also remind me of Tarkovky’s film ”Ivan’s Childhood”, which affected me in a similar way.
