Painting as a liberating exercise
Diego Mantoan

The paint is applied in Pagin’s works as intimate and personal practice, an externalization of impulsivity, a dialogue with himself without inhibition. The artist exhibites the obsession of carnality: breasts, legs, buttocks, vulva that comes in a fruit, animals and phallic shapes. The bodies tornviscerally, erotic libido make an effect, but never pornographic. The visions of genitals explode in an uncontrollable ejaculation, spewed by those who no longer want to submit the fake morality of a society suffering from sex. Carnal instinctsemerge as uniquely human, usually hidden in the secret of unspeakable fantasies.

The action of Pagin’s painting is divided into two phases: the first fast and furious, as if to satisfy a sudden desire, in the second, however, the artist seems to regain control of himself. From now the painted surface is attacked and crossed byviolent and frantic graphic signs. The initial fury is then quenched with wide expanses of blue and pink, soften lines capable of biting.
The background sky transforms corporeality placing it in the dreamlike sense of ecstasy. Pagin uses art as an act of freedom and, together, of individual affirmation: declare his existence in flesh and blood, but especially in the flesh. At the vernissage, next to the paintings, will attempt to pursue this goal by applying the probes to his body, hoping to find out where they reside carnal instincts and desire to live.
