#AMOREMIO – INFORMATIONS

#AMOREMIO

In this artwork the artist brings the questioning about the Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, and its relationship in present days. Those two moments are illustrated by the use of organic and expressionists brushstrokes that is opposed to the classicist figurative image.

The couple uses the technology among the abundance of fruits, wine and a cake. Today the use of technologies creates the contemporary caves and the image of the food photographed by the couple is the shadow at the bottom of these caves.

The united couple nourishes each other and food is the symbol of this support, while wine represents the passion.

The composition of the painting was inspired by Rembrandt's "The Jewish Bride". Just as in Rembrandt's painting the couple is positioned in the center of the composition, the man involves the woman and protects her as she leads him to find the best angle in photography.

Behind the woman there is an exit from the cave, the water floods from the exit and it symbolizes life, at this moment when the man looks at the woman he sees the reality through the light present from exit of the cave.
