Lightness and complexity, evasion and reality; the artwork “Balloons” results from the attempt to investigate, through of art, the contradictions hidden in human souls and to depict, with instinct and heart, the reality that every day a weak, delicate soul, in need of freedom, lives. The boulders that squash the contemporary man’s heart oppress his fantasy and imagination and turn him to become slave oh his own breathless avidity. Hope is darkened; the cruel reality wins on serenity: breath becomes gasping, and the only possible way seems to give up the unfair, unhappy life. The subject of Balloons, like the contemporary man, decides to fly away; in order to do it, he uses the symbol of his main desire: balloons, which are the metaphor of the yearn for lightness.
