The living energy of the fire that engulfs the world of the irrational and transports bringing in a dimension made of oblivion and enchanted wonder.
"People who follow Reels want everithing's paintings. They want the beauty, the action, tha drama, the excitment, the sadness, just everything." (Victor De Circasia)
"Nazareth is pure energy. The releases from the head before the hands, and not coincidentally chose to paint an ally like him: the fire. What can be docile, gentle, moody, slow, sudden, unpredictable in any case , and with him as he gives form to work univche, unrepeatable.
It 's impossible for me, remain indifferent to his paintings evoke ancestral scenarios, ineffable force to question, to dig into the unconscious, to indulge the curiosity of decoding feelings, impressions. Then the answers are found, they are right or wrong - according to whom? - Does not matter: the art has done its job, and so Reels egregiamnete for his pleasure and for ours. "(Blacks Marcorè)
Colors printed on the table on fire, as memories of a past onirco universal figures restless and tormented, torn by the pain of birth but at the same time give off the overwhelming positive energy of primordial matter.
All this is in the works of Nazarene Reels, Marches contemporary painter and sculptor who draws inspiration from great artists informal gestural experience (Pollock, Kline), sign (Mathieu, Hartung, Tobey), but also material (Fautrier, Tapies, Burri). His flowers, his women, his landscapes are the three souls of the artist: romantic, curious, restless, passionate and overwhelming.
Reels born in Filottrano, in the province of Ancona, January 6, 1947. Physiotherapist of the Italian National Track and Field, among his best-known athletes remember Pietro Mennea, Sara Simeoni, Gabriella Dorio, Giovanna Trillini, Gelindo Bordin, Valentina Vezzali. Fundamental in his artistic journey is an encounter with the Spanish artist Jose Guevara , from whom he learned the technique of fire, making it his own to the point of making it an essential part of himself and his life. Guevara was born in Spain, in Pueblo de Guzman in 1926. In 1953, in Montevideo, discovers a technique that permanently mark his artistic personality, making him one of the most original exponent of the 'informal material world: "oleo por combustion of the pigment" that is burning in the pictorial material previously treated.
The fire becomes a creative genius, plasma color and matter, creating expanses exotic ports at night, in a constant metamorphosis of identity and forms.
His favorite pupil, the only accepted and recognized as such, is precisely Nazarene Reels, as the teacher, soon began to use fire to materialize its vision on the canvas of the world. The fire, stone and wood.
For him, a painter and sculptor, the contact with the natural elements is absolutely vital. Artist, pioneer, King experienced, the challenges do not frighten him, indeed. If anything, the push to achieve a more bold and ambitious. The stages of his passionate and tactile relationship with the material they see him choose the first clay, then the stone and marble.
Bodies tend to infinity in a groan of pain tacit knowledge, mischievous faces, abstract, dreamlike memories. Reels is surrealistic, visionary, material, concepts and techniques devours an insatiable thirst for knowledge and experimentation.
Undefined landscapes, distant, almost vanishing in the memory and consistency is allernano dirompenli with emanations of pure energy, which originated from the explosion of new material in nearly a Big Bang and flowers, flowers Reels, wonderful, scary, romantic, provocative: what apparently looks like a flower may conceal another, preserve dangers confront us Enigmai as a sphinx that materializes at the fork, leaving us free to choose how direzionc eras go.
One of the most emblematic works of sculptor Reels: apple-man (the man who becomes the apple or apple, forbidden fruit, which devours man?). The man-apple Reels fight without using violence to get rid of the symbol of original sin, for storing the initial state of mourning, the Garden of Eden. But the suffering is palpable, the weight of evil is about to crush him at any moment might come to fruition transmutation, the man resists the temptation to fall, to undergo metamorphosis, to let the divine nature of being annihilated everything.
A battle without winners or losers, which crystallizes in the figure and two eternal, only half human. Rocchetti never gives solutions, does not reveal the ending, does not indicate a road but many paths. His many faces never cease to amaze. And like him, his works.
Sweet, impulsive, provocative, and always ready to joke, Rocchelli is eclectic, omnivorous, volcanic, but also prone to reflection and to investigate, lingering, himself and humanity that surrounds him. Far from 'judgmental, merely to put the viewer in front of thousands of possible solutions of interpretation, a thousand possible worlds that stem from the negation of the world and continues its dissolution.
Emerge from his hands and works spectacular towering sculptures as "The Hand" Installed in the "Park of the living stones" of tracks: 13 tons, representing the left hand with the palm facing upward, while the bottom fingers of other hand trying to drag in the mouth of the volcano. And here again the allegory: the good that comes up against the negative forces of evil. But if Reels sculpture for the rules still have a value, in painting count only intuition, sensitivity, imagination. The fade, dissolve, it is the essence of the Bobbins: a vehicle of irrationality, so half the work evokes the material itself, the symbol of the intervention of the case and the quality of the material in the same configuration of plastic space.
The powerful presence of the natural world in an ebb and flow system of communicating vessels, presides over the region of more disturbing work Reels.
And 'the land of the woods at night, underwater worlds, volcanic eruptions, the holy cities. Randomness and automatic reels represent the possibility of subverting the axioms universally accepted.
Denouncing the world and our identity are illusory or likely to vanish, to report that we do not know what or who we are, requires opening the doors of fear of the unknown to the mind, which also ends up being the unknown physical denial normally perceived reality.
The liturgy of the universe of fire and at the same time the underwater world is so necessary: ??an exorcism is both liberating and a search for identity in a context where there are no recognizable identity.
The works of such a scenario Reels become visionary and surreal experience where you can experience the creation, the pain, the wonder.
Reels Nazarene is positive, dynamic, instills confidence. His handshake and his eyes, which go straight to the heart, leads naturally to approach in confidence to the man and the artist, opening the heart and soul, heart and soul reminiscent of the fire.
"My path is a strange - he said several times the Rocchetti - but not random. I am a chiropractor who has traveled the world by straightening the backs of the athletes and with the wisdom of trying to bring health and fitness manual man.
I've always had a creative phase in this manual, for example Rejoicing of sculpture, art my first love. Then, dazzled by technique Guevaviara I discovered the expressive power of fire. "
Reels rejects any idea, any image provides space for rational interpretations, psychological or cultural works with its irrational opens every door, through scenes and scenarios that upset without the observer who knows the real reason. His is the Iinguaggio NTES nomadic as an instrument of transition, aiming to expand beyond the boundaries of representation, forms, images with no reference points, as they are drowned in the great fire of backgrounds, offsetting any possible relationship with time, are apparitions that emerge slowly to the surface to cross it, remain suspended beyond the space to be captured by a look, an emotion, a thought, and then dissolve again in the eternal universe and become shaped by the element that generated them.
Nazareth's works are on display everywhere in the museum Cupramontana Label (AN), the Museum of Modern Filottrano (AN), the museum Beato Sante Mombararoccio (PU), the Art Gallery of Friars Minor Falconara (AN) Parish Gallery in Torina (MC), the Museum of Sacred Art Serrapretona (MC), in the public park Fontescodella of Macerata, Piazza Cerasa Mondolfo (PU), Lives of the Stones Park Track (MC), the seat of the University Sports Centre of Turin.
Works that affect its ability to evoke, dragging the viewer into a dimension made of oblivion and enchanted wonder, every time like the first, the atmosphere of telluric, primordial origins of everything.
