What do we see when we are eyes closed?

 

Are we still in the same place we were before?

 

“Where are we?” grew up and has its roots in this city, where the society we live in, leads us to a life prospective and perception that doesn't really fit with our inner sense.

 

What are humans made for?

This is the main question of all times, and it's truly and probably a non-answer question.

Truth is there is a connection in between ourself and the world we live in; we may like to think this is where we come from and where we aim in our entire existence .

 

But what this exhibition explores is: how we do feel this connection.

Our senses work on different levels, (we all are able to see, to hear, to touch and to taste the world around us) but what would happen if we'd switch off one or more of our senses?

So, that is the borderline that can give us a different point of view on ourself and on the world we must related to.

This is the main subject of this exhibition: a borderline which is a proper different dimension than the real world, that become alive in that different dimension a canvas can create.

 

 

“The true work of art is born from the 'artist': a mysterious, enigmatic, and mystical creation. It detaches itself from him, it acquires an autonomous life, becomes a personality, an independent subject, animated with a spiritual breath, the living subject of a real existence of being. ”

 

(Cit.- Wassily Kandinsky)

 

 

It is a personal path and exploration of what is behind the pure reality untouched by our emotions and feelings.

It is a step-by-step work towards a more concious use of our sensitive system.

Our entire sensitive system, and how we actually modify and interpret the pure reality, is “where we are?” and obviously is a different place for each one of us.

This levels are strictly connected to each other and the aim would be then to balance them all in the way that most suits us, because we live the world we choose to live before even to live our objective reality.

 

The exhibition is developed by the pointing of an “Aim” and a series of consequences and reactions the path towards this aim causes.

The “Aims” have their main sources in what can be defined spiritualism, or religion, or esoteric, or psychology and it all depends on how each one of us prefers to name it.

All this elements come from a mix of personal experiences and studies and mainly from a long series of fortuities events have come in front of.

A series of “events” the artist fell forced to focus on rather than not; events, had lead to a better understanding and exploration of the human being in general but, first of all, of the personal being.

When a “Rational Aim”, represented by a particular subject “printed” on the canvas, is pointed there's a peculiar and long work to gain what the mind see.

What is called a “Rational Aim” is not necessary what is commonly defined “Rational” but it is mainly a clear aim coming from a particular needed.

The straight consequence is the feeling and emotional side that become alive, through a random production of irrational works where colours and forms are thrown on the canvas.

This process step by step come to a different level where the irrational, and initial, “Force” is actually guided by a more concious sense.

What is just an explosion of feelings and sensations become a build up work of forms and colours on the canvas related to the specific subject is needed to be expressed.

The end of the process is when the peculiar work of “building up” of feelings and sensations is able to actually match what is needed to be express and over all this needed is expressed in the right way requested from the initial “force”.

 

Then is just, and again, an endless and perpetual cycle: “Rational Aim - Irrational feelings and emotions taking over – Concious building up of forms and colours – Matching in between the expression needed and conciousness”.

 

"A soul in tension that's learning to fly
condition grounded but determined to try
can't keep my eyes from the -circling- skies
tongue-tied & twisted just an earth-bound misfit"
