Since the seventies, Joseph Marioni has been exclusively a painter. His paintings are created vertically with the use of a paint-saturated roller, in such a way so as the paint covers the largest area of the canvas while the surplus trickles to the bottom. Following the drying of the layer, this procedure is repeated several times, usually with coats of different or simply contrasting colours. The pictures are entitled Yellow, Blue, Red, Green, White.

These works encourage us to experience the colour not as a simple surface but as a phenomenon delivered entirely to the viewer. Seemingly radical by their title and the process of their creation, these paintings display an undeniable depth and texture provoked by accidents, traces of running acrylic and by the vibrations of the colour, obtained by the superimposition of different coats and the play of transparency and translucence.
