La morte di Adone - Mariangela Bombardieri

La morte di Adone

Painting, Mixed technique, Canvas, 80 x 100 x 1 cm, 2013
Death of Adonis

At 8:46 am on 11 September 2001, the world stood still for a few long moments, multiplied endlessly on television around the world , two airliners crashed a short distance from each of the time ' another , into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York. The victims of the attack on the twin towers were 2,749 . The tragedy that struck the "Big Apple" (Manhattan and then , by extension, New York), stabbing her to death , resulted in the death and injury of thousands of innocent civilians and a global economic crisis of enormous scope , which still continues . It brings together the myth of Adonis, a young man of extraordinary beauty, beloved by Venus. According to legend , wounded by mistake by one of the arrows of Cupid, Venus fell in love with Adonis, spending their days hunting with him and neglecting his duties as divine . The goddess , who knew the fate of the boy, had repeatedly suggested that Adonis rifuggisse aggressive beasts . One day, while Adonis was alone on the hunt , his dogs sniffed the traces of a wild boar : the handsome hunter , heedless of the warnings of Venus, after chasing him , hit him without killing him. The ferocious wild boar attacked him and stabbed him to death. From the tears of Venus, rushed desperate , born of roses , while the blood of Adonis were born anemones , flowers of very short duration , whose petals are dispersed by the wind shortly after flowering ( the name derives from the greek anemos which means "wind " ) . The young and handsome Adonis mythical imagination is the symbol of the transience of human life and the precariousness of earthly goods , issues that arise in the center of the reflection of Petrarch , whose work is a melancholy account of the passage of time and the uncertainty of the human condition : " All my life it seems to me nothing more than a dream and a fleeting ghost light " ( Petrarch, Epistolae de rebus familiaribus , 2, 9). In the Canzoniere , his poetic work that is universally known Petrarch 's love for Laura is central , driving force around which the spiritual life of the poet. Laura is not only the woman you want, but the symbol of earthly things and of their fragility , that breaks down at the prospect of eternal :
"Mr. ' , targeted as ' the time flies ,
et is like life
flees , et death is something over the shoulders.
You are here now , think of the game ( to death) :
because the soul (the soul ) naked and alone
conventional ch'arrive to that doubtful ( insidious ) calle ( path : death ) . "
Hence the perception of a lack of meaning and a sense of futility , which is at the root of the " live bitter sweet " witnessed by the Canzoniere .
Now , without regard to the seriousness of events such as the tragedy of the Twin Towers, is being done to wonder if the real human drama is inherent , innate in the brevity of its existence on Earth. In fact , death and the transience of earthly things are inevitable and incontrovertible phenomena , inherent to the very concept of existence. The answer to the previous question is to be found in the work of Luigi Pirandello , which deals with the issue of exclusion and the eradication of modern man. His reflection on the appointment existential distress caused by the loss of values ​​and the inevitable depersonalization induced by the diffusion of the machine civilization . According to Pirandello's the essence of life is the continuous flow , the perpetual becoming, therefore , to "fix " the flow is not living . Pirandello's The hero is a man defeated , crushed by the tragic impossibility of escaping the conventions of society. The Sicilian writer is in his works the opposition mask / face. The man is not "nobody", its individuality does not exist, yet he finds himself continually and consciously defined in forms in which it is impossible to recognize , masks that are essential to secure any social identity , but which are as " traps " from which they can not escape. Man, therefore , quite unable to reconcile and form, can only look live, examine the outside, such as split , sensing the absurdity of habitual gestures that imposes its mask : life in modern society is not more that " a huge pupazzata ."

La creazione - Mariangela Bombardieri

La creazione

Painting, Mixed technique, Canvas, 100 x 100 x 1 cm, 2013
The creation

A chant arose from the clear and pure voice of St. Francis :
" All praise be yours , my Lord , with all Your creatures , especially Messer Brother Sun , who is day and enlighten us through him.
All praise be yours , my Lord, through Sister Moon and the stars in the sky have made them clear and precious and fair .
All praise be yours , my Lord, for brother wind and the clouds, and every time the serene , through which you give your creatures nourishment.
All praise be yours , my Lord , through Sister Water, which is very useful , humble, precious and pure .
All praise be yours , my Lord , through Brother Fire, through which we light up the night , and it is beautiful, joyful , robust and strong .
All praise be yours , my Lord, through our Sister Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us , and produces various fruits with colored flowers and herbs (...) " .
The Canticle of the Sun , the oldest poem of Italian literature , was composed by Santo two years before his death in 1226, at San Damiano , after a night of suffering. It evokes the whole cosmic reality then conceived to bear witness to the infinite Love of God In fact , praise the Lord begins with the admiration of the ether ( formed by the sun, moon and stars ) , the fifth constituent matter introduced by Aristotle. Francis then passes to the praise of the other four elements ( air, water, fire and earth ) : the "four roots of all things " according to Empedocles, and later Aristotle, who with his ideas influenced to about 2000 years, the scientific thought. At the summit of the universe there is the Christ Pantocrator (from the greek "Lord of all things " ) , which is portrayed in an attitude majestic and severe , the act of blessing with three fingers of his right hand , according to the ' Orthodox use . The Christ, as the incarnate Logos, is the key to understanding reality, and the answer to the mystery of existence. The representation of the five elements is then enclosed in an egg, wrapped in the coils of a uroburo , red and blue, while the background evokes in all its explosive power the occurrence of the "Big Bang" . The archetype of the oval actually permeates the history of mankind since ancient times , cultures uniting seemingly far apart . Several cosmogonic myths imagine the universe in the form of egg or as originated from an egg . It , symbol of perfection, is the primordial cell that contains the seeds of the multiplicity of beings and the image of the original totality prior to any differentiation. The presence in the painting dell'uroburo ( from Coptic Ouro , "king" , and Hebrew ob, "snake" ) , the snake biting its tail, evokes eternity and totality of the universe . It is the emblem of the eternal return and the ongoing regeneration of life , the King snake is the image that best describes the cyclic concept of time: the "Great Year " of the ancients. The body dell'Uroburo is red and blue to signify respectively the human dimension (the earth) and the divine dimension (heaven ), and therefore alludes to the union of opposites within the totality original .

La volpe e la maschera - Mariangela Bombardieri

La volpe e la maschera

Painting, Mixed technique, MDF, 90 x 90 cm, 2010
Personam tragicam forte vulpes viderat:
“o quanta species” inquit “cerebrum non habet!”
La volpe un giorno, per caso, vide una maschera tragica:
“Che bella testa!” esclamò. “ Peccato, che non ha cervello!”.

“La volpe e la maschera” è una favola di Fedro, poeta vissuto nell'età giulio-claudia, ripresa successivamente anche da Jean de La Fontaine come “la volpe e il busto”. In una realtà come quella contemporanea, dominata dalle apparenze, soltanto un'acuta osservatrice (impersonata dalla volpe) riesce a penetrare la sostanza del reale e a vedere al di là dell'esteriorità il senso di vuoto che nasconde.

La solitudine - Mariangela Bombardieri

La solitudine

Painting, Acrylic, Cardboard, 70 x 100 cm, 2010
La solitudine dell'uomo moderno di fronte ad una città che si vede come distante, estranea e inospitale. Non a caso la donna è seduta all'ombra di un salice. Infatti, sin dall'antichità all'immagine del salice è stata attribuita una valenza negativa, probabilmente dovuta al fatto che sembrava che i frutti dell'albero cadessero ancor prima di maturare. Questa particolarità era sottolineata già da Omero nell'Odissea, nell'episodio del commiato di Circe da Odisseo. L'idea dell'infecondità del salice era piuttosto radicata presso gli antichi e viene sottolineata anche da Plinio. Un certo tipo di solitudine non è in effetti sterile e improduttiva?

La creazione di Talete

Painting, Oil, Canvas, 90 x 90 x 3 cm, 2010
Talete di Mileto è il fondatore della scuola ionica e visse tra la fine del VII secolo e la prima metà del VI. Talete fu uomo politico, astronomo, matematico e fisico, oltre che filosofo. Sembra che non abbia lasciato scritti filosofici e dobbiamo ad Aristotele la conoscenza della sua dottrina fondamentale (Metafisica): “Talete dice che l'arché (il principio di tutte le cose) è l'acqua, perciò anche sosteneva che la terra sta sopra l'acqua; prendeva forse argomento dal vedere che il nutrimento d'ogni cosa è umido e persino il caldo si genera e vive nell'umido; ora ciò da cui tutto si genera è il principio di tutto.”
