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.

I loved Shenmue so much and I'm totally waiting for the third episode, but whenever I search for a good t-shirt, sweather or jacket, I always find dumb tigers... no one is REALLY good and menacing as the original (the tiger is the symbol on the back of the protagonist's jacket)! So, I handmade it from scratch, and if I may say so, it's pretty similar to the original... but in hi-res! I even added the seal from the very "phoenix" mirror in one corner. Hope you like it! From one Shenmue fan to many others! ;-)
