INVISIBLE CITIES, CITIES OF THE SOUL
The City is the place where the history of the individual Self meets and mingles with common history, which invades the area where each of us can live.
Urban space displays marks, tracks, footprints and symbols left by the human being as he walks throughout history. Symbols of both common and individual hopes and expectations are carried in time by the City.
My painting stresses the light of the Self striving for freedom and aiming at building and creating, against any destruction or non-being, whose tracks, however, will never be erased but will turn out to be the foundations of a new and more optimistic building process.
The wealth of history does not lie in cathedrals or pyramids only, but in the vital strength of each Individual and of the community as they meet the challenge and leave their marks on the stones making them shine in a new light.
The technique includes materializations and dematerializations, use of mortars and sands, stucco-work, acrylics, collage, along with matter composing and decomposing and superimposing, deconstructing and recreating pictures.
The technique used for the paintings reflects the ideas lying behind: the background is prepared with mortars and sands in order to convey the idea of real life suffering and then laid onto the canvas, scratched and carved, and then brushed and partially erased before being worked and reshaped again.
