LANDSCAPES OF THE INVISIBLE

Landscape of the invisible is a corpus of work which pays homage to the oriental painting and reflects on the idea of landscape as a metaphor for the representation of human interiority and the invisible. We can speak of “landscape”, as well as of “passage”, because the intimate and spiritual vision of the human being is realized precisely with an overlap, where the real finds its foundation, almost its imprint on the mystical level and vice versa. Similarly to what happens in other cycles and productions made in the last decade, the subtracted gaze is only an element of everyday transcendence. In the form of a metaphysical conjunctio, marshes, ponds and mountain ranges change in scale with liquid and shadowy forms typical of the molecular, organic and microscopic world. This is because in the invisibility of the landscape the first element that falls is the human measure that regulates everything according to an anthropocentric vision. Landscapes of the Invisible does not concern habitable places but a rich range of spaces that live there, capable of inscribing themselves in an ancestral topography. Invisibility is therefore an access, it reveals more than it takes away as long as the denuding of the figurative is centered on a metaphysical contact with nature, therefore through an inner vision.

“Landscapes of the invisible” è un corpus di opere che rende omaggio alla pittura orientale e riflette sull’idea di paesaggio come metafora della rappresentazione dell’interiorità umana e dell’invisibile. Si può parlare di “paesaggio”, così come di “passaggio”, perché la visione intima e spirituale dell’essere umano si realizza proprio con una sovrapposizione, dove il reale trova un suo fondamento, quasi il suo calco sul piano mistico e viceversa. Analogamente a quanto accade in altri cicli e produzioni realizzati nell’ultimo decennio, lo sguardo sottratto è solo un elemento di trascendenza del quotidiano. Nella forma di una coniunctio metafisica, acquitrini, paludi e catene montuose si danno il cambio di scala con forme liquide e umbratili tipiche del mondo molecolare, organico e microscopico. Questo perché nell’invisibilità del paesaggio, il primo elemento che viene a cadere è la misura umana, la misura che regola tutto secondo una visione antropocentrica. Landscapes of the Invisible non percorre luoghi abitabili ma una ricca gamma di spazi che ci abitano, capaci di iscriversi in una topografia ancestrale. L’invisibilità è quindi un accesso, rivela più di quanto tolga, a patto che il denudamento del figurativo sia imperniato in un contatto metafisico con la natura, quindi attraverso una  visione interiore.
