One of the accounts of our time begins when form and matter are no longer measurable, science has extended its limits and art has assumed the possibility of a multiple and layered vision. All of this is realized in an essential and spiral motion where simplicity becomes complex, an overlaying, a disembodied glance and time transforms into a being freed as it switches from slowing down to speeding up.
Lucio Terenzi has woven these tensions into his work, a veritable grammar to define his own language which in Realizzazione di un motivo (Lettera a Bernard) frees form from every constriction letting the act of vision become a field of happenings and possible relationships. Volume gradually peels away, space opens up and time undergoes that same disassociation that the original has undergone (like that of a bale of hay) which has cut through it, broken it apart, squashing it and leaving it wounded (the empty spaces) and which has acted from within, transforming itself. It is as if this work is retelling the birth of a child that maintains a formal relationship with the parent (material and context), the character, the impetus to change (elevation of the soul and tension to change as evidenced in the empty spaces) and a faithfulness to history that unites the singularity of territory and the genius loci to a historical understanding and an aesthetic filled with the present and the past.
