25 x 37 cm (framed)
Clad in his signature Loden coat, the photograph cloaks all else in darkness. A recurring theme, Gennari has at times invested the coat, with its characteristic color and silhouette, with something approaching its own identity, a symbolic representation of the artist’s persona. The work manifests a recurring idea in the artist's oeuvre: the impossibility of representing the self accurately. For Gennari, self-portraits constitute a primary theme—he has described his exhibitions as "metaphysical landscapes" consisting of self-portraits—and are of various kind.
