All my works follow the "fil rouge" of INCOMMUNICABILITY's theme, albeit in different declinations: social distancing, interpersonal relationships, internal conflicts, gender.
Incommunicability: social distancing.
This diptych represents a "New Urban Mythology". In a suspended world where everything is possible and achievable but also claustrophobic and lonely. It tells the individual's transformation and evolution of and his metropolis at the time of Covid-19 and looks to a future of profound change.
It is inspired by Italo Calvino's "Le città invisibili." It wants to be an invitation to a deeper understanding of visible and invisible experiences, a combinatorial reading with the observer who finds himself deepening the various interpretative nuances, placing the accent on humanity's condition, which the web tool silently humiliates and demeans.
This artwork intends to reflect on the metropolises and the possibilities we have to live in them and escape them.
The Dog-Man, a new urban mythological figure, contemplates his possible future, the dreams that go beyond time and physical form. The dog represents the values of change, transformation, Feelings of resistance, the companion, the guide within us but also of subordination to already dictated rules of social sufficiency, obedience to conventions, and prejudices. The transition to the "new" always involves emotional resistance; the colors and textures create a feeling of illusion, dreams that go beyond time and physical form.
Created during the lockdown is part of a diptych that began with "Metropolitan Dog" last days of December 2019 and continues with "Penthesilea" in March 2020.
