Woźniak uses advertisement aesthetics: bold lettering, figures outlined with simple contours. The logic of a commercial message is disturbed, however, by how the painterly substance is emphasised: the trails of paint and the texture of the canvas. The letter clusters contain the word “frammenti,” Italian for “fragments,” but also, if one assumes a sufficiently imaginative approach, other words, such as “ferment.” This is precisely the strategy used in Woźniak’s paintings: disrupting order, creatively transforming the painting tradition, humorously commenting on reality.
