PHOENIX

PHOENIX

The Mediterrean landscape is rapidly changing because of the death of numerous palms. Plants that have been characterizing the typicalness of our landscape for centuries.
In consequence of international commercial exchanges that involved our country, new vegetable species were introduced and spread like wild fire. among these was a dangerous parasite called The Punteruolo Rosso (rhynchophorus ferrugineus) the cause of the death of many age-old specimens of Phoenix Canariensis.
The focus of my research is the identity of mutating landscapes and the disappearance of an essential element in Mediterrranean culture and an important mythological and symbolic reference: the palm.
In different countries the palm has always viewed as a symbolic representation of rebirth and balance between life and death.

come dimensioni è uguale precisa a una palma che ho ritratto a >Roma, nei pressi della Galleria Borghese!
Diventerà un quadro di 140x100cm e non seccherà mai!
Ciaooo!
