I´m artist David Dominguez, I have a bachelor degree in Arts but most of my formation has been developed by myself doing mostly painting in acrylic and oil. I´m studying now the Painting and Drawing master course at Riaci and I´m experimenting a lot with different materials to mix contemporary techniques and traditional Italian methods and themes.

僕の名前はDavid Dominguez、アーティストです。美術の学士号を持っていますが、多くはアクリル画や油絵を描いて行く中、独学で学びました。今はアカデミアリアチで絵画のマスターコースで学んでいます。現代の技術と伝統的なイタリアの方式と主題をミックスしたり、様々な素材を使い実験しています。

Painting-Drawing 1-Master Course 2017 (Student2)

The first and second weeks in Florence and in Accademia Riaci have been to know the city and get involved in the learning processes of the classes. I have found some places to get materials, and how native people involve with the foreigner. The city is great to get some inspiration from the traditional art accumulated and to know how teachers work with the students concerns. In my case I like human female figure, mixed with some experimental atmospheres of maybe abstract nature in which I can work brilliant colors and voluptuous forms.

We have visited also some historical places like the Bigallo Museum of art and some important streets and piazzas where the movement is big like the piazza del Duomo or the Ponte Vecchio zone in downtown. At the atelier I´ve been working with materials such as sanguine, pencils, some charcoal and also some acrylics because I´m a painter mainly. The painting and drawing classes have been with professors Alessandro and Andy, they both show interest for the learning processes of the students and for their preoccupations. They give enough space to experimentation also.

フィレンツェ、そしてアカデミアリアチでの最初の週と二週間目は街を知り、クラスでの授業を受けました。 素材を売っている店をいくつか見つけ、土地の人がどのように外国人と関わっているのかを知りました。この街は蓄積された伝統芸術からインスピレーションを受けたり、先生がどのように学生の関心事と向き合っているのかを知るのに最高です。 私の場合、鮮やかな色と官能的なフォルムを通して、抽象的な雰囲気で実験的な女性の身体を描くのが好きです。

私たちは、ビガッロ美術館など歴史的な場所や、ダウンタウンのドゥオモ広場やポンテ・ヴェキオといった、人が多く重要な通りや広場にも見学に行きました。 アトリエでは、赤クレヨンや鉛筆、チャコール、そして私はペインターなので、アクリルといった素材を使って制作をしました。絵画コースの先生はアレッサンドロとアンディ、二人共学生の学習プロセスや疑問について興味を持っていました。そして、彼らは充分に実験をさせてもくれました。
