The core aspect of Marchini’s work is the vivid light and illumination that radiate from the canvas, he has a skillful way of capturing the luster and brilliance of light within his work. “Oil paint is my favorite material,” said Marchini. “It is a substance which makes it possible to best express what one feels. Especially since we can try certain tests before obtaining the desired result, an impossible exercise with acrylic in particular, which dries too quickly,” confides the artist.
