Alessandro Papetti, Aqua

 Papetti’s Acqua paintings, especially the nocturnal examples, tap a childhood memory: “We went to bathe by night in summer”’ he says. “The sea was black. Swimming under water, in silence and total darkness, was as exciting as it was frightening. I always expected to encounter a deep-sea monster with shiny eyes.”
