One houndred of works on cotton paper realized from 2008 to 2016. The artworks’s titles are taken from Emily Dickinson’s poems – the poetries are indicated by T.H.Johnson. numbers.
Papers cut with crime news, chocolate papers, food nets, fragments and pages thrown in the basket. Recovering these residual and discard objects is the beginning point of the art action, an action that aims to challenge the flower: it will win? Bloom is result wrote Emily Dickinson. The flower is the result, the finish of surpassing the personal caos of human complexity. Tulipan is frequent, female symbol of harmony and beauty: it embodies absolute love, the numer of six petals is the magic number of the perfect balance between opposite shapes, able to animate a vital process.
FLOWERS? has ended with a dream: a trail of light came out of my studio and, stretching along the street, it pushed towards the center of the city, crossed the square and finally climbed the medieval tower, transforming itself into a tulip of light. Thus was born Tulip on Tower – a Flower for the city.
