RICCARDO ROMAGNOLI

Luca Dall'Olio is attracted to his surroundings and places his contemplative gaze on them. 
In many of his works, there is always a predominant colour scheme, with architecture accompanied by trees incorporated into urban materials, transforming them into witnesses of their own existence. Trees that integrate silently, making space for themselves, to coexist and recreate the environment in an original way.
In his compositions, he prefers classical architecture immersed in nature in a dialogue between past and present, where we lose ourselves and find ourselves in a world of wonders. 
There is a lot of poetry handed down from his father Bruno in Luca that comes from the soul and is made of instinct, interpretation, feeling, creating a language that allows him to read inside the words that become brushstrokes and thoughts turn into harmony. He daydreams, dancing between the folds of time, gathering life and transforming it into a work of art.
Everything is connected, the poet works on verbal material, but his sources of inspiration are always a vision or an image of something. The artist works with the pupils of the soul, with imagination, light, colours, movements, he builds dream worlds.

In his creations, there is a strong desire to communicate: thoughts, hopes, nostalgia, silences, mystery, dreams, reality. By isolating them from context, Luca's art is not self-referential, but goes straight to the audience and is immediately communicative. When observing his paintings, you will catch every single detail of the scene with your eye. A characteristic of Luca's composition are the details. I mention a few that enrich it such as: the hourglass, the lighthouse, the ship.
The hourglass represents the incessant and inexorable passing of time, one is born, grows, grows old and dies. The sand contained in the hourglass flows downwards, a movement that represents man's return to the earth. 


The lighthouse Sentinel of the sea, guardian of the night with its powerful glow illuminates it, but is also visible during the day with its mirrors reflecting the light of the sun. The lighthouse is likened to God because of its circular shape, which is a symbol of infinity, guiding us with its brightness and protecting us by pointing us to the harbour, and for Luke it is a symbol of spirituality. The light gives strength and tenacity to overcome all the storms of the soul, because it remains unchanging in storms, becoming a point of reference.

The ship: Thought is the wind, knowledge the sail, and man the ship. (Augustus Hare) Every day one has to deal with the problems of life, which flow like a wave in the ocean, sometimes low, sometimes high. When it reaches the shore it lays its possessions on the sand and silently retreats into its immensity. 
The wind is change and we have to understand where the wind is blowing, if it is too strong I wait in the harbour, and when it inflates the sails of my ship, I will be able to proceed swiftly along my goal, and knowledge helps us to direct life.
Luke reminds us that we too get lost in unthinkable routes because we are at the mercy of the waves, and then we all find ourselves dreaming under the same sky, like travellers with no destination and no time in a wonderful world....our own.
