    Arte Divina

    • Barcode: 9781788081184

    Our artist's life commitment and dedication to the art are immense. It resonates passion, beauty and intensity beyond words. Centred around the concept of creation and the act of creating. Like in religious tradition the one that creates is divine and of divine intention. Strictly focusing on inspiration, symbolism, philosophy, creativity, and imagination.

    The double-crosses symbolise the void or the abyss. "If you look long enough into the abyss, the abyss begins to look back through you." – Friedrich Nietzsche

    The abyss is a kind of monster, the monster of complete cynicism and true nihilism - the empty man that post-modernism seems to favour. Pursuing an utter lack of beauty, life values and aesthetics leaves one empty, and perhaps incapable of recovering one's artistic nature. 'Arte Divina' greatly values beauty as an essential virtue of art. The double-cross is a symbol that rebels against the apathy and the defeatist culture and post-modernism gave birth to this trend. At University studying art and design, we were taught how to deconstruct and to break down values, leaving no room for aesthetics or emotions with no appreciation for beauty.

    "In an age of ugliness, a work of beauty is an act of defiance" – Sir Roger Scruton
