ascensione del cane al cielo n.8

Painting, Political / Social, Mixed technique, Canvas, 30x40x2cm, 2009
...every element disappears to give way to the central figure of the animal that in fact ascends, rising upwards. It is a clear religious reference that exploits the Catholic triangulation of the mechanism that ranges from original sin to resurrection, passing by way of divine forgiveness. This is a metaphor that re-embraces and reopens our discourse, drawing on an even more rigid and structured mental state: that constituted in the western world by Christianity. If on the one hand it is true that we increasingly talk about animal rights, ecology and respect for nature, it is also strangely true that these discourses take on the form of external absolution and redemption, lending once again a privileged position to man who claims for himself the task of deciding when and in what form rights should be recognized, just as a divinity would have to decide when and in what form to concede ascension to an after life...
