Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil, Enamel on Canvas.

This work is an integral part of a series of explorations and plastic-philosophical reflections subordinated to the theme of language and the shaping of the self and human relationships through it.
Since the dawn of humankind, language ihas evolved ts complexities and its importance in becoming human.
The basis of the series are the philosophical reflections of Ludwig Wittgenstein, intertwined with my own personal thoughts and experiences, sublimed through images.

This work in particular, is inspired by and explores the role of the ancient palimpsests, used over and over by the ancient scribes to write the most diverse kinds of thoughts, here represented by the different colors that overlap each other.
Maybe one color is a grocery list overlaping a great thought; maybe it's just someone trying to put into words an emotion; or maybe someone who changed their feeling towards something.
I want viewers to think of the whys and whats and feel the infinite richness and plasticity of just being... human.
