Revelation (Rivelazione) was created for a travelling exhibition entitled, The oblique look and is inspired by the Greek statue, Aphrodite of Milos, better known as Venus de Milo. Each illustrator was asked to write a few lines explaining their work. I believe, True beauty knows no vanity. It hides shyly in the most hidden corners; in some subtle contrasts. Real beauty forces us to overcome our mental, cultural and religious patterns and tells us not to fear the emotions hidden beyond appearance and aesthetics. Real beauty leads us beyond itself. Through overlooked and unexpected details it reveals the mysterious force of “absence”, “deficiencies” and “silence” and forces us to look inward and rediscover ourselves, happy to be invisible and precious to the universe.
