The series ANCIENT MYSTERIUM was inspired by the ritual dance of bees on a rhododendron flower in Bremen’s Bürgerpark. For a few moments I managed to focus my attention not on the movement itself but on the significant and symbolic value that I had in front of my eyes, which I then tried to transpose into these seven works. In the creative phase I felt the power of the ancient mystery hidden in the path between observation of detail and its conceptual content, of which the detail is only a part. Hence the idea to name the series ANCIENT MYSTERIUM.
The exhibition focuses on seven archetypes of the human imagination and each painting represents the crystallized aesthetic intuition of the archetype to which it refers.
For this reason, despite the fact that there are different details in each work, each representation can be enjoyed immediately, as soon as the viewer approaches it through an overall vision. The series was conceived and created in a relatively short period of time, so there is no chronological order among the seven pictures, only a conceptual representative unit.
Each work is composed of two narrative elements: notation, which represents the pure concept to which the work refers; chromatic combinations, which represent the perception of the pure concept that one acquires through the senses.
