Art for me

Art for me it means creating a place where we can let go, a space that allows us the escape from the daily life thoughts and makes us deeply part of the present, of the here and now: the moment in which only the calmness and beauty of something that we perceive exist, and the place where we share this experience with other people.Art like a ritual. A surrealistic and oneiric performance that involves the audience in a multi sensorial common experience. Art as a medium to unite people.Concepts and Statements in Art “divide” the audience. Bringing them to watch, or listen from a personal perspective based on the personal experiences and/or cultural background.If we focus on the senses, on the perceptions, on the simple sensorial experience instead, we get closer to that pure human side of ourselves (or animal side as some people like to say) that we all have in common. Just perceiving.We acknowledge what relates us while sharing it.Art that communicates to that deep part of us that reminds us why we are alive and that makes us feel part of a whole, where colors, sounds, feelings, merge all together utopically, at least for few moments; part of which we forget in the chaos of external stimuli and in the chaos of everyday life. Art that creates that state of perception that positively stimulates and regenerates us, and that gives us new perspectives and ideas to face our daily life more creatively.
