“Gianni Dessì talked about the significance of the central areas of his picture, referring to them as a highly important sources of energy which determine the entire pictorial system as well as its latent patterns of movements, transformations, and interpretations. (…) Frequently, these central areas have three-dimensional elements and generate spiral-shaped and concentric waves of motions that infuse the picture with dynamism. This pictorial dynamism suggests something vegetative, organic, physical, and material, even though the overall structure appears as a visualization of an intelligible concept.”
