“TV says that the roads are dangerous / but the only danger that I feel really / is to not be able to feel anything / the scent of flowers, the smell of the city.”
These words are taken from “Mud”, a song of Jovanotti, who impressed me greatly.
When he says that the real danger is that it could no longer feel anything… I paint in order to give voice to this concern. In this work, 40x40cm, oil on canvas, the protagonist is the road, as in the quote of the song. I think the roads are not something dangerous, but something fascinating. In this context, the key point is the direction of the red traffic divider and the sunset, barely mentioned, that makes the return trip a time load of waiting. Happy Monday, and good week to all!
