Can the night change the shape of an object? Can the presence of the light or its absence modify the shapes as well as the colours of things?
In this work, a diptych made of two canvas, the artist recreated a dreamlike form of a seagull in an ethereal and unreal night sky. However it seems represent not the transcription of a dream memory, but the report of a peaceful moment of nature contemplation. It’s a magic moment where the observed reality is allowed by the artist to change… Where also a seagull can free itself from its shape and, lighten up by the moon, find its true spirit.

Può la notte cambiare le forme? Può la presenza o l’assenza della luce modificare le forme, così come accade per i colori?
In quest’opera, un dittico composto di due tele, l’artista ricrea l’onirica forma di un gabbiano sullo sfondo di un cielo notturno, etereo e irreale. Tuttavia, il dipinto non sembra rappresentare il ricordo di un sogno, ma il racconto di un pacifico momento di contemplazione della natura.

Si tratta di una magica frazione di tempo in cui alla realtà osservata dall’artista è concesso di cambiare… Dove anche un gabbiano può liberarsi dalla propria forma e, illuminato dalla luna, trovare la sua vera essenza.
