Fire

 

Medium: acrylic, oil, chalk on canvas.

We wait to return to normal. We wait for the fire to be lit. Uncover the fire that is within us.

We stay indoors in the evening just when we should go out to have contact with other people. We have an ancestral need to really be with other people.

I happened to think how paradoxical the curfew is. In the past century, where a "curfew" was an evening bell which warned people to cover their fires for the night, to prevent accidents.

Today the curfew prevents accidents; prevents the virus. It is necessary.

But as the past is putting out the fire. Our inner fire.

I think the Doors song "light my fire" .... Try to set the night on fire .....

The night must be lived, the night must be set on fire

Fire, Fire, Fire.

Kronos, relentless passing of time, represented by a straight line that intersects with Kairos, represented by circular, soft figures, indicative of one's life experiences, the right moment.

From this intersection emerges Aion, the time of Being, manifest in a bright green color, a symbol of life in the deepest and most significant sense.

Kronos, Kairos and Aion, the three times that in this canvas find their mutual interaction in a harmony of colors and geometries, thus symbolizing that existential journey that is proper to the Human Being.

I Know That I Don't Know

 

Medium: acrylic, oil, enamel on canvas.

The work expresses the possibility of channeling the large amount of images and information produced by today's society along a multitude of ways of life.

The multitude of polychrome spots symbolize the enormous baggage of information coming from everywhere.

The multicolored lines are well-defined geometric paths that indicate a multiplicity of paths of life. They indicate all the cultural and experiential production of the human being.

The emerged part of the iceberg exists only because it is supported by the immersed part: the unconscious.

It is a work of denunciation, the author wants to underline the importance of building a conscience-unconscious relationship. This relationship is necessary for the development of a life path that contemplates the knowledge of not knowing of Socratic memory - I know that I don't know - an essential basis for the development of knowledge full of contents.

Towards Life

 

Medium: acrylic, enamel on canvas.

From darkness to light, from faces hidden in the shadows to the colors of consciousness.

The triptych that the author proposes a message of optimistic trust in the human being.

Fulcrum of his inner dialogue transported on the canvas is the passage from the absence of feelings, symbolized by darkness, to the riot of positive sentiments, revealed through a multitude of colors.

The boat, represented in a minimalist way, is strongly present in the first painting, signifying the fundamental role played by the ferrying towards a different vision of life where harmony, peace and respect for nature prevail.

Once the ferrying is complete, in the next two artworks the boat gradually slips into the background. This is replaced by an orange line, a symbol of harmony and balance.

The triptych describes an inner journey: an intimate way that turns our gaze to hope, to the possibility of escaping from the shadow world in favor of a life full of meaning and pleasure.
