"Color is a means to exert a direct influence on the soul. Color is a key, the eye the hammer that strikes the soul of the instrument with a thousand strings ..." (Vasily Kandinskij)
At a time, the early twentieth century, where figures like Freud and Jung reveal the unconscious mechanisms and the reality was increasingly dematerializing with new theories on the atom, also the art began to reflect on itself and to focus on its essential components: color, shape, sign, space. Translate psychic reality to stunning results. The discovery of the self, the magic of painting up to the most contemporary techniques. A mental and emotional path full of suggestions. An unusual show, for many innovative aspects and in a certain sense "site specific". Both the approach as the articulation are intimately linked to the soul of artists: their relationship between Art and Science, ethnographic interest, the metaphor of the journey as a cognitive adventure. All aspects that an artist experiences, revealing his interest in a scientific approach to nature and reality, for exploration, for its path as restless and summarizes key to its very existence. The overall ambition is to allow the viewer to understand the origin of the symbolic code prepared by the artist, its development and its ramifications to highlight before the eyes of visitors the whole system of symbols, its grammar and his compositional syntax. A journey in which their concrete experience becomes a metaphor to show the most general way to abstraction, and also along the spiritual path as a deep and personal needs.
The principle of inner necessity is for the artist deeply concentrated in the problems of the psychology of creation, of "soul searching vibrations" that moves around, following which one gets to abstraction. In his proceed the creative act is presented as an unsolvable secret, and abstract compositions express one or another mood, they can be described as variants of the incarnation secrets and contemplation of the world. Suggestions, impressions and research symbolist custodian of his own soul, but above all bearers of a new pictorial overview of the proper and specific declination of “ansambl” and synthesis of the arts. An exhibition of visual sources of contemporary artists in contemporary decorative forms, a real mosaic of visual influences. A tribute to the works of artists and an openness to dialogue with the future, and in this direction in the research of communication and 'interaction between the generations. A series of color combinations consisting of ingredients that well express the concept of abstract art. Extracting objectivity from raw materials by creating an image that goes beyond the tangibility of the elements of which the same image is composed. Geometric and abstract motifs inspired by the great masters of the twentieth century such as Dubuffet, Pollock and Mirò, revisited in a contemporary key, which dazzle with their overabundance of energy and contradictions, both chromatic and iconographic. There are artists whose art “lifts off the ground" and the size of the newspaper, transporting the viewer into the intimate and silent interiority, the personal memory, reflection. Abstraction is located outside of time and becomes a carrier of the entire range of human emotions. A "magic abstraction", where to dictate the pace is always the color that seduces the eye and the image suggests to the mind of every one; an 'always different image depending on the observer, who lives the work in a personal way. Fragments of the newspaper that become chromatic and prospective trial hinting, beyond the detail, the existence of a much broader completeness. The artist loves to play with the ambiguity of color, shape and line and in the vastness of representation enter items such as the case and the transience, to suggest how no joy ever given to live in fullness the human being. The individual is present through the psychological power of colored backgrounds, as well as fragments of environments. The geometric line which marks the limit of the canvas and refers to delimitation of the space, rational organization metaphor.
A deep connection between art and life.
