DOSTOEVSKYJ: ABITARE IL MISTERO

11 2016 / 04-2017

In a new attempt to show the Visual Art as a way of knowledge, the work produced with the occasion of the Congress DOSTOEVSKYJ: ABITARE IL MISTERO, is framed in the year of the Centenary of the Russian Revolution of 1917. It has been presented in a forum of reflection dialogued from an interdisciplinary perspective: Is there in Dostoevsky’s anti-moralist narrative a key to overcoming the anti-moralist nihilism of the postmodern era? Is still his way of unraveling the mystery of the human being able to speak to us today?

Phases of the project:

11 / 12 2016 Photography and Video Recording in Mombasa, Kenia.

01 / 02 2017 Paintings. London.

04 / 2017 International Conference at the Pontificia Universitá Della Santa Croce. Paper&Screening and Paintings Exhibition.

 


 

LOOKING AT THE TREE OF LIFE

02-2014 / 12-2015

This project investigates, via the creative process, the concept of EBRIETAS: The knowledgable gaze and the gaze of knowledge.

I title this project Looking at the Tree of Life, as a way to express the beauty of the call of the Tree of Life is an invitation. If we want to maintain the look, the intensity of nostalgia grows within us, and with it hope.

I have come to discover how the calling of the Tree of life has left a tangible impression on each culture. Its presence crosses the boundaries of time and space: Hom, Iggdrasil, Izata, Kabala, White tree, Plaksha…. It is a universal calling, a channel by which the universal is expressed in the particular.

Phases of the project:

02 / 07 2014 Paintings. West Sussex Residence. London.

01 / 06 2015 Movie Recreating paintings. Sevilla.

09 / 12 2015 Graphic pieces: Repetitions and variations of meaning.

POETRY AS VISUAL LANGUAGE

12-2012 / 12-2013

Working in my studio in London exploring the poetic dimension in visual language combining video and painting and developing video-art and digital-art as an approach of abstraction in painting.

The project used classic/contemporary topics as reference/research points eg “Ut Pictura Poesis” (applying it to our digital era), “A-live metaphor” Paul Ricoeur and Aesthetics of four Taoist thresholds (Empathy, Vital Rhythm, Reticence, Emptiness).

Exhibition in C26, The  Biscuit Factory Space on December 2013.

I am living and working in between Seville and London. Actually in London

Understanding art as a form of life: always active, in constant gestation

I experience as an artist what Heidegger concludes as a philosopher: Art, as a truth-put-into-reality, is poetry. Art as a way of knowledge, a play of convergence between beauty and truth. This is the passion which pushes me towards this task. Towards my current study of the concept of Ebrietas: Knowledge through gazing and the gaze of knowledge

Meeting in the poetic dimension an ideal instrument for the creative act by through the adjustment of the values of poetry with the nature of reality

Reality and poetry have a structural symbolic manifestation and concealment, in both there is the ambiguity of “being like”, being and non-being

The elements which construct poetry: metaphor, symbol, formal synthesis or abstraction, give to this ambivalence an expressive channel of truth. Allowing the artist and the spectator to communicate with their inner selves, because the suggested sense echoes the contents of our own inner conscious or unconscious. Being the area in which is revealed the true knowledge

In this poetical concept as visual language, I find an open channel for our contemporary look, which search through the image

Working in a global city like London, the historical crossroads of the world, the financial capital, which stimulates cultural development is a form of drinking from living waters. As in the great experiments between global institutions journeying on different crossroads within the village of the globe, I seek dialogue between different visual disciplines: cinema, photography, visual, graphic design, painting, theatre.
