The word Metamorphosis, of ancient origin, characterizes more than any other the huge array of transformations societies are undergoing today. Some even speak of a change of paradigm, signifying by that a transformation of human civilization itself. The unbelievable turmoil we see around us testifies to its irrepressible force. The artist, not a passive witness, records its tremors, like a seismograph of the state of the world. Like its intuitive and enlightened surveyors, the thought processes in which the artist is engaged are inscribed in the transformative potential of work itself. Between the changing, moving, trembling, scintillating world and the artwork that speaks, suggests, touches, and troubles, the artist embodies the very idea of passage and transformation. Here, the present can grow deep roots, find sustenance in millennial forces. To show contemporary works here, the fruit of artists' singular gestures, heightens one's awareness of the metamorphoses of the world in which we live.
