“VISION AND REALITY”
Carole Feuerman | Sossio
PRIVATE VIEW: Tuesday May 10th, at 6:30 pm
From May 10th to 25th 2016
4 Mandeville Place, LONDON (UK)
“Whatever you see and touch, the entire business of existence, all that is visibile, is just a projection of your inner being: the invisible”.
“Vision and reality are one and the same thing”, this is what the exhibition proposes when confronting two artists: Carole Feuerman and Sossio. The first artist, a hyperrealist sculptor, and the second, an abstract painter complement each another in the desire to remind us of the inseparability of vision and reality.
Vision, the dream, is not lived through a surreal experience, but as a root of everything that exists and sustains the internal universe through a process of “auto-creation”. Dreaming is experienced as the very breath of life and manifests itself in everything that you see and touch. The artist incarnates the capacity of every man to project and achieve every dream possible. He has the gift of capturing on canvas an expression of the constantly changing present that has never before existed, but above all, he has in himself the source of immortality. We are the true creators of the world that surrounds us. These two artists seek to express this, to present to us the life in its twofold nature, in what the eyes see and in what the human being is – what it knows and what it creates.
Carole Feuerman’s women – the serene bathers, genuine as one may expect, move from a moment to another , calm and dreamlike. They seem projected in another dimension, with eyes closed, a relaxed expression and timeless bodies. They invite us to dream with them, to make us feel what they feel. They want us to almost join hands and guide us through their vision.
Art, like life, is for Sossio an ideal reflection of the Dream that manifests itself in every detail like the entirety of the work as an alchemical transformation – a reversal that places you as a true and unique creator of the world in which you live. After few minutes of “observation” in front of one of Sossio’s works, it can catapult the absence of time in the unity of being which is the true cause of our “doings”, a therapeutic course towards a miraculous act of transformation of reality in a world of solutions and victories.
This exhibition is inspired by words and texts by Elio D’Anna, in particular his latest work, Technology of the Dreamer:
“Between dream and reality there is neither distance nor division – just as there is no distance between being and having, believing and seeing; that which a man dreams is already reality.
Dream manifests in absence of time. It is the limits of your perception that requires time.
Time is, for you, a magic paint revealing what otherwise would remain invisible.
Behind all that you see and touch is the dream of one man, his integrity. A world of wonder or a world full of pain must first be dreamed to be realized.”
