After still life
Greco’s still life pictures goes from a real point of view of a photo to a new and allegorical dimension.
Roberto Greco tries to make the viewers think a bit deeper and make them think of what the painter was truly trying to express.
Greco’s aim is not to distance himself from classical masters, his pictures put us in his world of passion, oppulence and sexuality. With a certain sense of humour and cynicism, Greco breaks the stereotype of classical Still Life by adding disturbing elements like pets. You can see and feel Greco’s narration little by little through all of his pictures, the viewers are automatically having their own interpretation of Greco’s pictures with some simple details, sometimes just with the buzz of a fly.

The portrait of the woman with the grapes is also in the same category of Still Life, from her voluntarily prude posture, she allows herself to be looked at, as if she were inviting us to discover her story...
