Description: Last part of the trilogy by title" and blame that sonofabitch of Eva".
Closes a pictorial discourse began in 2006: three paintings lived as need to materialize/ exorcise a period of my life, an important step.
The expectation, the fall (the dark), the rebirth ( the light).
The slow ascent, hard to get up from the mud. Blame that how fucked Eva scapegoat of our discomfort, ancient and modern.
Made of flesh and blood, the body takes abstract forms, contorted, elongated, misrepresented, expressive medium: ideal container which encloses emotions, memories, feelings of the past and the present. Matter that is sculpted and follows my thoughts, my feelings. Fills up like a jar and then emptying and filling again: pain, fear, happiness become color. Color that makes visible the invisible.
The figure extends upwards by lengthening the arms exaggeratedly to arrive to grip the ball. The cascade of light floods magically figure which regenerates of new life. The rise has need of lightness, has left at the bottom of the stomach the sign, the track, not to forget.
