About Guglielmo Alberto Nacci

BIOGRAPHY
I am a self-taught painter. I manifested the passion for drawing since my childhood. I started using oil at the age of 18.
The starting point of my artistic path are the introspective experiences of adolescence. Through painting I tried to give voice to the chaotic turmoil full of unravelling intuitions and contradictions of adolescence. As time passed by, painting became the space for subconscious to manifest itself, bringing with it all the folly that otherwise is confined in our depths.
Between 1998 and 2002 I lived in El Salvador. This experience deeply influenced the evolution of my artistic path.
Green is a mark of this period as well as blue is for the adolescence period.

STATEMENT
The search of Truth obsesses the life of many. But that same obsessing search distracts attention from the very object.
Truth is all around us, Truth is right in front of our eyes and it manifests itself through Beauty, in this sensible realm.
Therefore, if Art is to be a path toward the Truth, artists should be inherently concerned with Beauty.
AND BEAUTY DOES HAVE OBJECTIVE STANDARDS.
Artists do not create Art. Art is only in the Perfection of Nature. Art is Beauty, art is the secret matrix of Beauty and we do not create Beauty. In the presence of Beauty, we can merely be spectators, to be overwhelmed, mind-blown, astonished and “pierced”. The uncanny ability of an artist is that to submerge him/her-self into folly and there to wander at ease. That is the only realm where it is possible to elicit, without understanding, the secrets of that matrix which generates Beauty. What we call art is the clear and absolutely original language through which the artist expresses his/her own sense of Beauty.
"Our language interpose itself between learning and the truth as a dusty glass, a deforming mirror. The Eden language was like a clear window, through which a light of full comprehension flowed".
(George Steiner, After Babel).
"Beauty is truth, truth beauty, - that is all, Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know''. (John Keats)
