“MEET A PICTORIAL ROUTE AND ITS RESOURCES INSIDE CARE SPACES”
LIFE THE QUESTIONS THE DREAMS THE DOUBTS
The essence of my thought, of my questions, from the first light of my youthful conscience up to now, is aimed at the reasons of life. From the secret things of the universe, the various paths of my intuitions, emotions, images have emerged. I used signs, colors, shapes, to give expression to these founding themes, more and more present throughout my work. The energy inside the world; the whirling movement of the raw material, infinitesimal; chaos and the cosmos, universes, man, birth and death, trees, a flower… When man allows himself to meditate, he is a privileged participant of all this. It can grasp the vastness of everything and nothingness with the modalities of science, with the light of the soul, with the conscious will of knowledge. It can penetrate, enjoy and understand the “unity” that is in the manifold: to enter into this vision is to give meaning to the secrets of the universe, it is an invitation to soul paths, towards a dynamic spiritual conception, towards the awareness of our body, which is the world between the worlds – with its laws – but which must always find the government of the spirit. Knowing how to grasp stillness and completeness in oneself. To know that we are part of the marvelous total dance of the living and of things, but we remain unique in ourselves. And it is, perhaps, to perceive the sense of that “love that moves the sun and the other stars” and to be able to sense its sacral charm. Finally, all of this is D.O’s research in us.
