Vittorio Mazzucconi's paintings,
with the Artist's comments

  The Inner Harmony (The Shell)
180 x 180, acrylic on paper, mounted on panel
  Thus my soul lives and operates: with its eyes closed, gazing purely on the inner truth, constructing a harmony as if it were a spiral, like a conch, a shell, a boat with which to navigate the Sea of Unconsciousness, while, outside, the world appears in an obscure chaos. All Vittorio Mazzucconi’s paintings and Architectures are conceived this way.

  The title belongs to 12 years afterwards, when the painting has been found again, thus giving a proof to what is true also for all the other titles.
  They never indicate a prior theme of a painting whose birth is spontaneous and with no reference whatsoever to a theme, but constitute only a posterior reading.
In this painting there are also Pluto and Demeter, while Persephone assumes the Anastasia’s body, as the beginning of a new love which means a return to light.

…in which, on the contrary, is expressed the end of a love, with its precipitating into the darkness..

  The Soul and the Self 2
180 x 180, acrylic on paper, mounted on panel
  The ample gesture of the Self protects the Soul, which is in the shadow, as it can be seen also in the following paintings.
