DIALOGUES - Connections with others
IDENTITY - Self Connections - Memories and experimentation of an expanded time in the present
DIALOGICAL PAINTINGS are compositions with paint and brush on paper, resulting from experiences of communication and visual expression through projections, shared with guests. Those experiences are called DIALOGICAL EXPERIENCES.
The presence of the “other” not only is inspiring, but increases detachment in the act of painting and dissolves blocks from judgement. The creative impulse then flows naturally and freely.
“The self is constituted, organized, presented by aesthetic phenomena”. (Gilberto Safra).
“It is the recognition of the other that confirms us that we exist and that we are (more or less) the same throughout life, as people close to us continue to give us back our identity”. (Maria Rita Kehl).
Dialogical Paintings constitute a search for identity, for self-knowledge. It also comes from the desire to share and reciprocate.
