ART AS AN INNER QUEST
glossed catalogue of paintings 1976-1977
VITTORIO MAZZUCCONI
(6/8)


FEMININITY The femininity as the carrier of Eros, as a personal relationship bringing experience and knowledge, will appear only at a later stage (1979-1980) in Mazzucconi’s painting.
Here it is rather conceived as an universal principle.



The Night and the Dawn
1976
70 x 100, oil on canvas  
  Under cover of darkness, actually, under cover of cosmic obscurity, there is a luminous point, a child is born. Is he the son of the night? Or is he the son of the cosmic and divine mother, whose hair are ornate with stars and whose heart is light ...



  Our Lady with the Child
1976.06.21
oil on plywood  
  The head of the Child has the form of a spiral, thus expressing a divine presence.



  Osiris 2 (Iside)
1977
120 x 100, oil on canvas

  As in Osiris 1, the moon attracts the tides with the fishes and also the souls ( the fish deprived of the head might be a symbol of the human life cut off by death) The painting shows to us also the relationship between the physical world (the lower and red part) and the spiritual one in the upper part.
