The works of Pietro Cardone are an intimate studio and a celebration of flowers: their colors, their shapes, the sinuous waves of leaves and petals, and finally the enigmatic splendor of their inflorescences.
His paintings are examples of how the artist treats subjects chosen by him, not only as self-entities, such as portraits of what is clear and visible to us, but he interprets the subject as real landscapes , places where there are other dimensions of the mind and to where the eye can sweep. The flowers of Cardone, in their macro perspective, evoke desert, desert dunes, and abysses of fire, endless valleys or even fields of wheat swept by the winds. Nature represented by nature.
Thanks to the impressive realism of his paintings, the spectator's imagination is invited to go beyond unconventional lines, shapes and spaces. The intimacy created between the artist and the subjects of his paintings is embodied in the quality of the paintings. The observer enjoys the gentle force of nature by the grace of flowers, the subject of his painting.
