Big peace is adding to silence. It is similar to the 66, but here a big peace of the mind is adding to the silence. Over a wide background of liquid pale blue, vanishing stains, of a golden pink-ochre colour, are spreading out at the facing corners, as light coloured spheres on a calm surface of the water, or the ones of a peaceful splash of memory. The adjective “reale” is in Italian: is it possible that the wish was to “play” with the double meaning of “reale” that, in the Italian language, can mean both “real” and “royal”? Anyway the works “Reale Fiction” by Johann Nußächer are characterized by a tridimensional appearance (the surface is always flat) that plays in a remarkable way with the typical aspects of natural materials, as gypsum surfaces, dug, cut, pierced, submitted to different colour gradations. It is this relationship between fiction and reality to create the mysterious and polyvalent fascination of these works, that can be read in very different ways too (macro-photography effects) and involve with their abstract beauty, communicating directly with the field of fantasy and fantastic.
