You will forgive me if I start our weekly appointment with a quote from an old, famous Italian song, which you may like to listen to clicking here (highly recommended, Mina is a famous and sophisticated Italian performer).
‘Parole’ is translated as ‘words’.
I believe in the immense power of words.
They are able to uplift you to heaven, or to create despair and abandonment.
They unveil reality.
I love creating a story around each of my paintings, and I usually post both when a piece is on sale.
In a few words I guide the viewer to look through my eyes at the meaning of the portrait. Words and colours fuse and permeate a soulful insight of reality.
Of course, it is a mere suggestion. We are always called to look beyond.
Beyond the first glance.
Beyond the first meaning.
Yesterday I was interviewed by the amazing Steve Brooks of Wackylamps on his Instagram page (click here). In this interview I dedicate some time to outline my WHY as a professional artist.
Why do I paint?
Why am I driven to art?
Everything I do is to embrace the love and the intense emotions I have inside.
I believe we are all craving a deep knowing of our spiritual selves.
I just happen to narrate the intangible thoughts in my dreamlike, emotional paintings.
