The miscellany of bright, contrasting, pure colours. The manifest extroversion of decor.
In Araldica, Federico Pepe sends us a creative message that not only defines the aesthetics of a new “interior psychedelia” but also investigates unusual formulae for perceptive interaction between decorated ceramics and the individual. On the vast scale of large ceramic wall covering slabs, Pepe’s visual textures acquire the hypnotic, fascinating configuration of a variegated mixture of colours, inspired by those of traditional marbled papers.
Some of Pepe’s designs juxtapose two different graphic linear motifs, geometrically centred on the slab: a “coat-of-arms” – a crest rather like a composite shield, alluding to the imagery of heraldry – and an “hourglass” shape, consisting of two opposing isosceles triangles.
