ART AS AN INNER QUEST
glossed catalogue of paintings 1978-1979
VITTORIO MAZZUCCONI
(2/23)


THE MOTHER The year starts with some paintings of inward and painful meditation, as if, unconsciously, they were preluding to the death of he artist’s mother.



Our Lady with the Child
1978
80 x 65, oil on canvas
There is a deformity in her face, that expresses her movement towards the child, or is the interior child in my soul who is intensely in touch, in this moment, with the mother?



The Poet
1978
60 x 50, oil on canvas
The poet has an absorbed expression, with his eyes half open, while the daemon suggests to him….how many paintings will talk to us about what he is whispering to my hearth!



The Fall
1978
60 x 50, oil on canvas
It’s a sorrowful look at the world, on which the primordial drama of the creation revives.



The Bird
1978
60 x 50, oil on canvas
It’s also the longing for a spiritual dimension, the flight of the soul.
