AN OPEN WINDOW TO MY WORK
A REALLY CONSCIOUS LIVING CHOICE
It is a choice, it always was and will be a choice, a free humble unconditional acceptance of our role, of our purpose in this world, nothing more, nothing less. We all are messengers, just that, but messengers that are able to see the always present truth that connects us all. We are responsible for transmitting that irrepressible truth to the best of ours skills, knowing that it will never be enough.
The object isn’t to make art, it’s to be in that wonderful state which makes art inevitable.
CONEXION THROUGH PRESENCE AND AWARENESS
A HUMBLE WAY TO ASK FOR PERMISSION WITHOUT WORDS
Before starting a new project I took the time to relax and connect. For me this step is fundamental because, somehow, it prepares the foundations that are going to give meaning to the work. It is like a trip to the interior, a search in which I have to go discarding everything temporary, purely physical, to reach the essence, the permanent, the timeless. It is like creating a deeply intimate relationship with what you are going to represent, long before you begin to represent it. You can say that it is almost a way to ask for permission without words, to humbly ask if you are worthy. For me, this relationship is very valuable and delicate, so I work hard to maintain the conditions to allow it to grow and develop. The difficult thing now is to maintain that state of peace, gratitude, presence… it is incredibly easy to leave the mind behind the wheel and see you surrounded by judgments and thought, miles away.
NATURE ALWAYS PUTS ME TO THE TEST
In the studio I can control everything practically, it is a stable and safe environment, where I can change and adjust, at pleasure, to the smallest detail. I can dedicate the necessary hours and days without worry, everything is almost immobile. But nature does not wait for you, it is the life itself, changing every second, where there are no mistakes or successes, just carefree life, sprouting from each leaf, each branch, flooding everything, immense and volatile, and yet, so present. Being a spectator and being able to paint this marvel is, for me, one of the greatest privileges.
