Here the portrait becomes a method of experimenting. Petrelli titles this collection of paintings "Visions of Soul". The iconografic style is derived from a personal, "luminous" neo-expressionism. The synthesis doesn't simply affects the strong line of the palette knife, the fast brushwork, or the reduction to monocromy or bicromy. In these "impressions" Petrelli freezes the most inner expressions. Sometimes the subjects look pure and free, sometimes even ugly and gloomy. In this naturalness, without aesthetic patterns, is unveiled the real mood of that person, in that specific instant. The dynamism of the lines highlights this unstoppable succession of continuously evolving states. The paintings are created on big wood plates, and the subjects are almost always depicted in hieratic pose.
