ANIMISM

The day I acquired the habit of consciously pronouncing the words “thank you”, I felt I had gained possession of a magic wand capable of transforming everything.
Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

 

Children arrive animists. They learn about life, themselves, and empathy by imagining the liveliness of everything they come into contact with.
S. Kelley Harrell, Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

ANIMISM AND THE INFINITE

 

[…] Underline the fact that behind the evidence of things there is always something more, behind a specific place there’s always a non-place built by thoughts, energies and stories into the invisible walls of the other side.

 

Art is alchemy. The artist in the Tarot is represented by the figure of the alchemist, through its acts learns to transform the Matter. The alchemist transforms materials into other materials, opening up hidden and invisible layers and bringing to light the unseen.

 

My work is developed on the possibility of showing stratifications of history, accumulation of energy and hidden potentials contained into anything.

 

It is a specific language that needs to be learnt in order to be understood and spoken: Art is the language of Soul.
