  • About the artwork

    This Mimmo Rotella's SeriDécollage is a tribute to Roman Holiday1953 directed by William Wyler, starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.

    The plot is well known. Who does not remember his escape from the palace of the lovely Princess Anne, the meeting with Joe, penniless journalist willing to do anything to get his scoop, and their wonderful day with Vespa through the streets of romantic and popular Rome?

    The story of a love that gives short, crisp taste of freedom and the pleasure for the small things to a princess bored by diplomatic conferences and international relations. And it is precisely because we know the film so well that Rotella, in his manifesto ripped focuses on extraneous details to the story told by Wyler. The grace, elegance and quiet sophistication of Audrey Hepburn and the defiant grin of Gregory Peck take the lead of this SeriDécollage. Their faces are framed by triangular cutouts that catch the viewer's eye leading to grasp the expressiveness of two glances.

    Snags lead the public to focus on fresh and spontaneous smile of a young Audrey Hepburn that leaves almost reveal the delightful naivete of an actress in her first starring role, and the confident look of a mature Gregory Peck, already known and established. Rotella technique is very particular and consists to tear two or more posters glued to each other.

Mimmo Rotella

Born in: 1918

Italy

Mimmo Rotella (Domenico Rotella), (born Oct. 7, 1918, Catanzaro, Italy - died Jan. 8, 2006, Milan, Italy), is an Italian artist who was best known for his extravagant “double décollages,” which he crafted by ripping posters (particularly movie advertisements) off exterior walls, attaching the fragments to canvases, and then tearing off smaller pieces from the posters to create colourful, often amusing, collages. Mimmo Rotella was the only Italian artist formally linked to the French Nouveau Réalistes artists, with whom he exhibited in the 1960s. Rotella studied art in Naples and held a Fulbright scholarship (1951–52) at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, where he was admired for his experimental “phonetic” poetry. He returned to Italy in 1953 and abandoned painting for his signature décollages and assemblages, into which he incorporated textiles and other materials. Later he experimented with acrylic paint and photographic elements. Rotella lived in Paris in the 1960s and ’70s, but in 1980 he settled in Milan.
