The foundation of my research is on trying to awake awareness in human being, to find the communion with his soul in recognition of his spirituality. Since the first works Apparenze (Appearances, 1998), I have faced the theme of the dualism: the reality is the true appearance of something else. I have taken the viewer, through an artistic performance punctuated by sounds and lights, to immerse himself into the world of the soul (I Quattro Elementi in Pittura e Musica, The Four Elements in Painting and Music, 2002). I have investigated the deepest shades of love (I Volti dell’Amore, The Faces of Love, 2004), I have understood that love and freedom are the foundation of this society and that to become a real human being we must always exceed ourselves (Pensieri su Nietzsche, Thoughts about Nietzsche, 2006). We need a great will to change this world, it is necessary to go back to the principles that have made this reality to be able to fully understand it (The First Man Into Space, 2011 and Archetipi, 2011). In The Time of the Eternity (2014), I investigated myself and I become aware of who I am. With Dress (2016), I'm doing a visual journey along syncretism between religions which tries to reconcile elements of cultural, philosophical and religious belonging to cultures and precedent doctrines to find a link, a tendency to the reconciliation of opposites that has to take place in each of our souls, and it is the desire to know. Synthetic Worlds (2019) is a search of the laws that are the basis of this world, a revelation through the representation of reconstructed worlds in studio. Way Back Into Soul (2024) rediscover the symbolism of ancient legends as a form of meditation to find the most intimate contact with your soul and thus increase your awareness of yourself. I love studying, researching and changing because this leads to evolution. Usually I make series of artworks. My art merges various art techniques such as: digital art, video art, installation, sculpture, photography, oil paintings with music and poetry. In a style that ranges from pop to surreal to conceptual, to awaken awareness of one's spirituality. ALESSIA DELVECCHIO
