I OPEN a window on a type of vision, mine and probably not only, on the mysterious "essence" of Art.

Numerous interpretations are given to explain Art, a word abused in its materiality and essence.Now, I can think that Art, or what we generally consider to be, must ultimately be considered "indescribable": in its nature, in what we notice and what we define when we see "the Work" (the work of transformation (which happens) on oneself and made visible in images).

Art is truly indefinable, it is an EMOTION, a COMMUNICATION, a RELATION capable of universal strength over time.

We now know from many fields that what moves people is not a "push" but an "ATTRACTION".

I don't think there is so much distance between this "universal law" that involves us all and that it is now also considered as a force that belongs to fields apparently different from the visual and deeply interconnected ones and the "emotions" in the complex relational network that scientifically explains this. that binds "things".

Which have no meaning for themselves but only in the moment in which they relate to each other, even only in the moment in which we look at them - or we look at each other: whether they are things or people, it is the very matter of existence, a modality with which life manifests itself, a complex of infinite, universal, connected relationships, involving the entire universe, linked to "fundamental questions still unresolved, from the constitution of nature to those of ourselves, which we are part of nature" (* ) in the new radical scientific vision of quantum physics.
