Where are you? I miss you?
"Sisters" is part of the "Temporal Intersection" series. In the artwork "The Three Graces", I explore the relationship between happiness and sisterhood, inspired by beneficial divinities created by the sculptor Antonio Canova, while they are embraced in a hug among sisters, thus expressing tenderness and complicity.
“Do you love me” depicts a statue eroded by time, discovered in the submerged city of Baia, aguishly awaiting a WhatsApp message that may confirm that she is still in the heart of the loved one. 💔
Reverse Metamorphosis “Reverse Metamorphosis”, which is part of my “Temporal Intersections” series, takes inspiration from my fascination with medusas and from the expression that I saw in a sculpture by Antonio Canova, “The Genius of Death “, that I photographed while on exhibition in Rome in February 2020, just before the current Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. According to researchers, the jellyfish appears to be able to conduct, under certain circumstances, a reverse metamorphosis, thus defeating death and becoming, in a certain sense, immortal. The colorful beauty of the “immortal” jellyfish appears to be unequivocally opposed to the cold expression of “The Genius of Death”, where light and color of life (we hope) will defeat the marble coldness and darkness of death.
Do you Love Me?
“I Am Yours” came to light during a time of personal growth, tied to emotional suffering. Aphrodite, the statue represented in this artwork, is considered to be the goddess of love, of beauty, of generation.Her divine power rests in the act of making love, which unites masculine and feminine in the sublimation of the sexual act.💕 The broken statue is much like the broken heart of the person who suffers for love.💔 However, in “I Am Yours", it is also the loss and the abandonment of the self, it is giving oneself without reservations, finding oneself naked and without defenses before pain. The end of love requires a period of mourning: “I Am Yours” represents the contrast between a painful ending and the possibility of rebirth and regeneration, as represented by the jellyfish, the medusas.
