Paradiso

Aside

Made by Norberto Carating in 1999, Paradiso is a piece which depicts harmony and variation, and at the same time, eccentricity and simplicity.

Paradiso depicts variation because it seems to be divided in parts and it is made with a combination of colors. There are parts in which the designs are explicit, many different lines are intricately designed with strokes of brush, and neon colors of pink, green, yellow, and blue. But even though it is made of different designs, colors, and forms, it seems that it has harmony because all in all, it has balance.

Eccentricity, which means how unusual a thing is, is also seen in this painting because its different parts have different forms. There are parts which are abstract, made of the different lines and colors mentioned above, simple with plain colors only, and then combined with a part in which the design is a visible presentation of overlapping long leaves but still the outline of the structure of the leaves are seen at it.

Even though Paradiso is unusual in its designs because it is varied in its lines, forms, and colors, when you look all over it, it is still simple maybe because of the consistency of the colors used, and the designs, which are very complex themselves, look very simple and calm when combined.
