Great balance and transmits serenity The same dimension of the canvas (100 x140) of the n.87 and analogous colour and surface gradations. The two pictures could be surely placed together. Compared with n.87 this one is however more rarefied. The background is vertically divided into three some distinct parts. There is an upper one in black and white, that takes back again the thickness and the hole-effect of the n.56; a central part in which a vanishing pale pink light is predominating and seems to lie over the “landscape” itself; and a lower part characterized by a very light blue-sky, that hardly veils the whitening projections down below .It is a work of a great balance and transmits serenity.
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.
