Only now I understand that all my paintings, but also the intellectual creativity are summarized in the Jn 11, 25-26: I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.
But to understand this, we all have to answer the question that Jesus asked Martha: Do you believe this? We are not stones… Lord is aking us to participate in the creation. Therefore, nature, animals and Saints exist. Consequently, techniques that are “light”, transient, as water-color and drawings are like “traces”, but also the technique defined as “eternal”, frescoes, where the color hardens into the rock. Jesus couldn’t do any miracle in places where there wasn’t faith. But without miracles we don’t exist because our best part wouldn’t be there… it wouldn’t be born, or it would be withered. It’s a miracle that we were born, but it’s equally a miracle to resurrect. Do you believe this?
