About Paolo Mara
Born in Formia(Italy) 1950.
Living and working in the countryside of Rome.
The artistic experience should not be only a product of immediate intuitions, but also a synthesis of reflections about the world around us, such as joy, beauty and suffering.
The artist has to be a channel, a "decoder" that transforms the signals coming from outside into painting, music, poetry etc. The greater this attitude, the more beautiful and intense is his work.
My artistic path is an continuous research inside and outside of myself, as in my own life. My purpose is to exceed the five senses to discover the essence of reality to transform creativity into a form of meditation.
My research goes in many directions, from immediate emotions to long reflections about the events of the world of today.
The common intent in my work is to create a "trait d'union", a deep communication between me and those who observes my paintings, with the hope to stimulate new emotions in the others, emotions that could exceed the concept of Art.
