First artist chosen by Artrust Gallery in Switzerland to paint for Maroggia (st)art Triennale to paint on the ex former wash house.
The idea to representing a scene of life in a wheat eld came out after discovering that Maroggia has the largest mill in Ticino. My research led to the creation of a traditional scene in the center of the paintng, but increasingly surreal on the sides of it. A lot of people migle with each other in a beautiful dance celebrating love.
I thought about the wheat as a union of people and cultures. Symbol of rebirth and of life itself. Its cycle is a path that marks a real transition from shadow to light. The characters communicate with each other, they call each other, they love each other, they court each other, they are friends, colleagues, brothers.
