The crumpled fabric reminds that life is a theatre, when the curtain opens the magic operates, full of mirages and illusions. Donadini considers to be in constant exploration, for the materials, the projects.

“I don’t like dictated interpretations, therefore I invite everybody to let their imagination flow. First of all, and personally, the Brosses Arretée reminds me of the artist’s gesture, materialised in a painting. By leaving the brush on the canvas, I wanted to give a wink to the painting’s process of creation, but also as an artist working in his atelier, honouring all the little pauses that makes the life of an artist. A painting is comparable to a construction site, where only the artist can decide when it’s ending. At last, I wanted to use this creased canvas to remind us that life is a theatre, when the curtains open the magic happens, full of mirages and illusions.” - Jean-Paul Donadini
