As the editor says, "Silvio Porzionato belongs to that breed of realist painters of reality to which, understood as mimetic representation of reality, not interested in anything. His revival of forms and figures of the visible (and the shape of the figure to excellence: the human body) is totally and absolutely key in painting, metaphysics (then turned intimate and all'altrove, still invisible), in the light of realism than ever packed with invention '.

Privileged subjects of his works, women are "normal", that have nothing to do with the female stereotype proposed by the worst TV shows. Bodies and faces defined by a score detailed, which is accompanied by a strong color sensibility, also present in monochrome, where the texture of the epidermis arises from a complex layering painting.

A Realism – concludes Alberto Agazzani – that "retrieves the forms of Reality, but betrays the nature of transporting it in a dimension all and only mental ', along a route traced the entire history of art.
