Impression of Myths

The series 002 combines the rehearsed pragmatic on series 001 with impressions drawn from the greek and roman mythology. The illustration recreates the ancient forms into ecstatic experiences reanimating natural dilemmas. By effect, the mythology was set like an expansive landscape whereby a pointillist attention has distinguished myths that contemplate the exceptional act of order formulation, either on time organization, or of life or death.

The series begins with the impression of Parcae, three women that are weaving the thread of life, therefore weaving the destiny of men: Nona, the one who spins; Decima, the one that measures and Morta the one that cuts and decides the way men die. Jupiter himself, who considers one by one the life of humans, could be subjected to the power of Parcae, not being able to intervene in the decision of the three women.

The impression of Janus depicts the god of transitions, beginnings and endings, doors and gates. Habitually, Janus is depicted with two faces, each one to its side, looking to a future and a past. Often, in order to reach another God, one has to first invoke Janus.

The impression of Penelope, Birth of Athenas and Persephone join the three myths together but is mainly illustrating Penelope's rebelliousness while she awaits the beloved husband, Ulysses. Penelope, being forced to choose a husband as Ulysses is not known to be dead or alive, uses the weaving of a shroud to trick time, weaving by day, unweaving by night. Athena was her guardian god, known to have been born from the head of Zeus, that had eaten her mother. Persephone, the daughter of Zeus, who was taken by Hades, the underworld God, is only allowed to spend six months outside of Hades reign for she has eaten a pip of a pomegranate. For this reason she is also the harvest Goddess, making spring happen when she leaves the underworld.

The men's collection, as in the series 001, is a syntheses of the women's collection study formulated in a visual grammar. The principle is to identify photographic impressions that agree with the forms taken into action in the study of the women's collection. For series 002 the work of Delmaet and Durandelle was chosen. It shows archeological excavations and the construction of cultural and historical monuments in which the influence of the idea of time's amplitude is confirmed, as well as its dilemmas, life and death.
