My work is inspired by the ancient art of Orthodox icons reinterpreted in a contemporary way. I create abstract icons to access the deeper reality of the universe. In my work I use ancient techniques of the icons together with contemporary techniques. With pigments, photographs, tree bark, sand I represent the immanent world, with gold I describe the spiritual and transcendent world.
Vesica piscis or Mandorla is an ogival shape symbol obtained from two circles of the same radius, intersecting each other so that the center of each circle is on the circumference of the other.
Known in India, in ancient Mesopotamia, in Africa and in Asian civilizations, it passes into Christianity. The Mandorla is associated with the figure of Christ or the Madonna and represented in many codes. It is a decorative element to emphasize the sacred figure represented inside. It has a double meaning:
alluding to the fruit of the almond, and to the seed in general, it becomes a clear symbol of Life.
as the intersection of two circles it represents the communication between two worlds, two different dimensions, that is, the material and spiritual planes, the human and the divine, the union between the terrestrial and the celestial.
