Mauro Di Francescantonio, "Maurocaribe", began painting at the age of eleven, but only through a long process, which has quickly established itself as careful interpreter of the landscape, he landed a thorough deconstruction, in which you may well recognize as he comes close to the paintings of Jackson Pollock, standing on the line of abstract expressionism.

The further away germs of his images but could also be found in some details of the paintings of Caspar David Friedrich, from which, a number of evaluation, seem to spring in the painting of Mauro Di Francescantonio multicolored shards, combined or intersected often supple strokes, as in a kaleidoscope of infinite combinations. And who has never been able to resist the ineffable charm of these geometries? One can not but observe, however, as in the works of Di Francescantonio, these are further broken down into a never-ending quest for harmony of lines and colors whose outcome, in an apparent informality of the composition, however, it can also suggest certain dream images glimpsed in margin of future worlds described by the fantasy stories of the best cinematography.
In his most recent production, the artist, in approaching all '"lyrical abstraction" advocated by Georges Mathieu, is expressed even more essential, and the movement of course random splashes of paint takes place on color backgrounds of perfect geometry, now juxtaposed in different gradations and now dissonant, so that the sign - as he says - to be configured in a balanced synthesis of composition.
But if, even in Friedrich, the dissolution of form stems from the inexplicable and irresistible force of nature, for our Maurocaribe, it manifests the equally irresistible power of imagination. And it is in the contemplation of his pictorial outcome that the viewer takes in the entire extraordinary fantastic vision of the author, expressed in images of balance and harmony of light and color that seems to calm down all his creative torment.
