The artist attempted to draw our attention to the internal coherence that characterizes his work over time. While the consistent foundation for Tirelli’s art is geometric abstraction, his paintings are not rigidly rationalist, deterministic, aprioristic, or deductive. The artist does not devise disembodied schemas, and his forms, volumes, and spaces–while primary, even elementary–are not ideal essences but instead seem impregnated by the empirical concreteness of experience as we perceive it.

Tirelli often works with deviations of perspective, perceptual “slips,” and spatial incongruities of vision, from which optical ambiguities cannot help but arise. Many of his forms and volumetric planes result from the progressive purification and distillation of everyday objects such as boxes and drawers, stairs and shelves. And his colors are never pure or harsh but are subtly modulated with light and shade; in other words, they are colors of real life and not its projection or ideal model. [Extract : ArtForum]
