About The Artwork

I wished to repropose, in absolutely contemporary, a work by Carlo Bonatto Minella, The religion of the deceased. The painting of the young artist from Piedmont, died at only thirty years, shows how much faith and respect for the dead is linked to historical traditions Greek-Roman. A scene of great drama, set in a twilight that leaves well understand the passing of the soul, shows a frail girl with hair gathered that gives the gift to the funeral monument. But the space of “transition” we are talking about is purely related to a noble feeling: faith. My work is totally desecrating, precisely, without religion. The girl, though memories posture of Greek-Roman statuary, is meant to represent the contemporary femininity made of transgressions naive and fragile personality. The tattoos and written in Latin on the left forearm “Ad vitam æternam”, translated “to eternal life”, alludes to this Century of a ill “youthfulness” strongly exhibitionist. Sitting behind a memorial column disfigured by graffiti, intent on chatting nervously with his smartphone, the young woman with the red hair flying senses a strange feeling of embarrassment. The awareness of non-compliance in respect of the dead transpires by his naive face doll. The gifts in the foreground symbolize the best that can already offer our society of “McDonaldization”. Space is changed, the play button backlit leads elsewhere. You can’t perceive the pulsing slight of the soul, the fine line between life and death. What remains is only a decadent and precarious reality that tries to take refuge in the virtual space where every day we share our obsessive habits: the network. I wanted to describe this work to transmit the thought that is hidden behind an artwork, behind the tireless working of the artist who always tries to look to the future without forgetting history, its origins.
