Medicine and art come together in Claude Santelli
From his works, their titles, explanatory and persuasive, clear, spontaneous and obvious, a profound spiritual sense ...
The spiritual dimension is innate in every individual and when we make room for listening and we can expand and elevate consciousness beyond the physical perimeter of our links with the higher unconscious, home of the best insights and inspirations.
I think life itself is aimed, through the experiences that we are experiencing, our spiritual growth to transform us more mature individuals in the service of others, aware that the other is us.
In 1982 she graduated in Medicine and is currently working in this field: in 1995 he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts What motivated you to undertake an artistic career?
I pushed the fact that Medicine and Art have the same goal: the pursuit of health and the 'harmony for the well being of body and spirit.
I am very grateful to the Academy of Fine Arts in Macerata that allowed me, during the 4 academic years, to grow artistically provides methods to transfer the art "visions of the universe is infinite and intangible" that I feel content in each of us .
Somehow her profession influenced her sculptures?
The experience led me to deeper insight into the man.
I agree with those reported in an interview with Dr. Corrado Roselli, physician and musician, who, the day of his graduation, the professors of the Commission said: "Until now you have studied the disease from the sick man will study tomorrow."
Upstream of the disease there is a state of mind suffering a loss of harmony and "joie de vivre" are the wounds and the wounds of the soul. The sculptures take on a morphology of these mental projections.
E 'spiritual anatomy, marred by dense clusters of particles emotional and memory, able to develop spaces of consciousness more or less hypertrophied.
Like comparing cosmological hypothesis according to which non-uniform concentrations of matter in space bend and expand unevenly.
There is, according to her, a bond, an intimate relationship, a thin thread between science, spirituality and art?
As demonstrated by modern physics, everything is connected with everything else, the more the level of these disciplines is high as it creates a virtuous cycle of osmosis and mutually reinforcing.
Why prefer the bronze, an alloy as a raw material for his sculptures?
The bronze has a beauty and a primordial force that comes from the fusion of matter lyrically describes as Dante's Paradise (I-60): "com'ferro that molten from the fire."
Lately I've been combining to bronze a more intangible element as animated graphics. A sort of video consists of images processed with graphic symbols pre logical. They are the thoughts of the sculpture outside of it.
They are thought to emotional images evoked by archetypes stored in the oldest part of our brain and are a universal language, empathy and immediate. Also express the desire of a burgeoning romance as a new communication tool in a globalized world.
As an artist, in particular, has deeply inspired the composition of his works? Why.
The most important inspiration I received as a child by my family that I have instilled a sense of deep humanity and awareness about the values of good and respectful of all that is beauty of life. With this spiritual heritage at the age of 15 I started to get interested in art exhibitions and artists. Particularly those that have characterized my training were Enzo Cucchi, on which I also did his thesis in 1995 for the Academy of Fine Arts in Macerataata.
I see his designs imbued with strong energy, vision and symbolism. Cucchi compare it to the mystics for its ability to observe what everyone has seen and thinking what nobody has thought.
This particular state of mind of observation applied by Leonardo da Vinci, by artists, scientists is the key to gain access to new discoveries that have allowed humanity to evolve phylogenetically in art, science and consciousness.
Currently, from the point of view, I feel inspired by Jean Michel Basquiat for its pure expression that speaks to the stomach and ear, using a universal style of writing is not built on logic and cognitive Mario Schifano for his insight that he has applied graphic image on the photo and video. When I see his photo lab, like the present to the MACRO in Rome, I find in his images, what all artists want: a place where multi-dimensional co-exist simultaneously.
Then I must add that lately I have in my work, the emotional language and poetry and visual senses.
The credit for this goes to the poet Edoardo Sanguineti that already in 1956 with the publication of "Laborintus" universe upsets the language syntax to express, physiognomic, the subconscious, which is the dimension inhabited by dreams and myths ego .
With the pre-or post-logical language, that is beyond the scope of the rational that is exclusive only in certain areas of the brain, it also gives voice to the deeper areas and archaic which houses the emotions and memories that I try to represent with my work.
During the upcoming Venice Biennale 2011 will be the pavilion of the Holy See. What is in this respect his opinion?
I am very pleased and supportive.
Almost all of our artistic heritage has been made thanks to the Church was able to support art and architecture in an enlightened manner by choosing the best artists who, as the Demiurge, they gave us, with their works, a bridge connection between the temporal and the divine.
I also believe that religion and art are both an expression of Truth, Goodness and Beauty, which are the same.
Allow me a joke: it is true, as it were, is not particularly care about the color black?
I love the color of their electromagnetic vibration.
Colors such as perfumes and music are the passwords to open our unconscious and unable to summon and activate large energies.
Black is the color used in place of, not to give up such property, but I use it as a neutral ground, a vacuum from which pluripotent, by contrast, can be born color dynamics.
He is afraid of death?
Death does not belong to us.
We have been given life with a beginning and an end.
Become aware of this limit helps us to manage without competition and with more humility and common sense in this unique gift of nature and respect for others.
