THE DECAY OF MATTER SHOWS THE SIGNS OF A FLUID DYNAMISM FACING REBIRTH
The artist’s pictorial flow evokes the phases of an ideal process of evolution, such as occurs for the water lilies in the silent water of the pond. Cristina Cocco’s artistic research begins with the curious and methodical observation of the Victoria cruziana and the Euryale ferox, with their suggestive shapes and enchanting colors. The “evolution” project introduces the passage from the wonder of flowering to the subsequent decomposition, the harbinger of a future regeneration. The sinuous waves that appear in the last paintings of this cycle anticipate the arrival of a pictorial dimension where the disintegration of the material shows the signs of a fluid dynamism aimed at rebirth.
The works of the project “evolution” are exhibited in the Botanical Gardens of Padua and Palermo.
