Parallel Convergences

The juxtaposition of the two terms is in fact an oxymoron: according to Euclidean geometry, in fact, two parallel lines can never converge. Precisely for this reason the expression is often used in politics to indicate that two parties converge on some or many points, while maintaining a substantial distance in the political line.

The artist wants to restore beauty to objects that seem to have lost it with daily use and to assign them a connotation of meaning different from the more widespread one. The painting "Parallel Convergences" incorporates waste materials used daily, such as paper napkins, packaging, etc. identifying in the objects themselves the quintessence of the consumer society and industrialized production. Reusing them is an aid, albeit limited, to environmental sustainability.

The artist hopes that the painting can convey a new and irrepressible enthusiasm every day. Enthusiasm derives from the combination of the Greek terms: en (inside) and thèos (god). To be enthusiastic literally means: to have a god within. An extremely deep and powerful concept, as well as the sensations and emotions that being in this state of mind causes us. The painting therefore wants to convey an irrepressible drive to act and operate by giving all of oneself. Enthusiasm is not only positive for us when we feel it, but also for those around us in every social area of our lives. This is why it is important, if not fundamental, to ensure that this feeling is generated (or found) within us.
