As Alberto D’Ambroso, a critic of modern and contemporary art, wrote in the catalog published by PALOMBI Editore: “… in the third helix, continuing to represent the Danube and evoke the god Istru, the artist presents a ‘river’ of Roman and Dacian deities (the god of fire, the goddess of lightning, the goddess of masonry, god of forge, god of abstraction and science, goddess of the earth, god of wheat, god of infinity), combined it with writings.Both the Romans and Dacia had a culture of polytheism. To create designs for icons of deities, the artist was inspired by Roman copies of Hellenistic statues and Roman statues found in Palazzo Altemps (Athena, Heracles, statue of Daddophorus, in the Massimo Palace (Hellenic princes, Heracles), Lucretia, statues in residential villas) and in the Capitoline Museums (Hercules and other statues).

DEI e SCRITTURE’s unique composition proposes the image of an itinerary (a drawn itinerary), “inhabited” by successive icons, intertwined with inscriptions – in the ancient Roman alphabet – that become images. Expanding into outer space, symbols become energy points, creating visual synergies, human and interconnected symbolic images, where the human body is not inspired by anatomy, but rather by a “work of art” of the human body, in a “colored world.” Language or masculine instruments. , the artist created icons starting from drawings that interpret the statuary forms of ancient Rome and Dacia culture through transformation and mutation, aiming to achieve a dialogue between ancient and contemporary, for years at the heart of research.
