Apollo Creed Totes
Inspired by the awesome series of books "The Dark Tower" by Stephen King, is a reference to the creed of the gunslingers with Roland Deschain, the main character of the books, as center of the set. This creed, for those who haven't read the King's magnus opus (I highly recommend it) and as a spoiler, reads: I don't aim with my hand; He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I aim with my eye. I don't shoot with my hand; He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I shoot with my mind. I don't kill with my gun; He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father. I kill with my heart

From the series “The color of memory”, oil on paper, original size 35 x 35 cm. These works come from some thoughts about classical sculpture. We know that the sculptures were originally colorful, and that the Egyptian, Greek, and Roman cultures, but also the pre-Columbian cultures, favored, to decorate them, very bright colors. But the passage of time has given us these sculptures predominantly white, so, from the Renaissance until today, the sculptural representation of man is almost always monochrome. And it is interesting to think that if by some historical accident, the same thing had happened with painting, today we would paint with one color, and we would find it quite natural, just as the monochrome sculptures seem entirely correct. Obviously this reasoning should be much more complex, but for me it was only the starting point for a reflection on the way we perceive reality, and what is that influences it. Looking for an expedient that makes it look colorful something that is not.
