No Mirrors: Perspectives of a Body

This is my most intimate work. It’s a study about my body, my imperfections, my shapes, seen from my own eyes, with my own perspective, with no mirrors.

It’s a reflection about how we perceive ourselves, about how much we need something – or someone – else to see how we really are. Or maybe not.

It’s a quest, an interrogation to the soul.

Do I need a mirror to know ho my body is? Its shape, its postures, how it moves and in which directions? Do I need a mirror to know how my soul is? How good and bad, the emotions, its flaws, its story and its desires? Do I need to mirror in somebody’s else soul to see mine?

Mirrors, however, tell only a half truth. The face in the looking glass is only half the size of your actual face, merely half of what you in fact present and others see.

James Hillman, The soul’s code

Heart and Brain Harmony

Hi everybody!

It’s been a long time! More than a year, actually, without posting new stuff. But ideas need their incubation period, before they come out and spread! – And life need to be lived and experienced, to allow new ideas to be conceived. No input, no output, right?

So I’m planning to change layout of this wordpress and I’m working on tons of new stuff, photography and illustrations, that will – super soon, I hope – be posted.

Here’s the last of my works: a dear friend, mother of a marvellous 5 years old girl student of mine, asked me to paint a very small image she found on the web, because she wanted to make her psychologist studio. Of course I accepted, because I absolutely loved the illustration and it was perfectly in line with my idea of emotional and mindful balance and harmony. So she sent it to me on Whatsapp and I copied it in a 50 x 70 canvass. Here it is, I hope you’ll let me know if you like it.

You’ll read me soon! In the meanwhile, never stop learning! ;)
