In Assolo. Singing over the Bones the title refers to the American mythological narration that speaks about the “Loba”, “Huesera”, the wolf-woman, a wild and primitive character that lives in the fields wandering around in search for animal bones, mainly of wolves. Once found, she brings them in her cave and recomposes the skeleton. So, she starts singing a vivid song over the collected bones: slowly the skeleton covers itself with muscles, tendons, organs, skin and hairs until the animal takes life again and runs free into the forest. The story addresses the main theme of ‘metamorphosis’ seen as the symbol of transformation and renaissance, profoundly connected with human life and its many unavoidable passages everybody has to face at some point.
In the three paintings the artist explores the threshold – as the space in which the metamorphosis takes place – using a philosophical language, enriched with several layers of different symbolic meanings and references.
The painting surface lives of the tension between the abstract pictorial structures and the narrative graphic elements: a refined drawing evokes long thin plants rising from the bottom to the top of the painting. The leaves present a narrow shape and create a dense net of intertwined branches beyond which it is impossible to see. We are neither allowed to see the roots or the land where the plants stand, giving the idea of a suspended and imaginary world.
