ANDREA MARESCALCHI

Born in 1954 in Rome, Italy. He lived and worked between Rome and Florence, where he died in 2015.

Avida Diva, 2010

In the painting Avida Diva, the artist plays with soft shades of grey and suggests the image of a big monkey observing its reflection in a mirror. A mirror of water. The monkey, by nature a primate, becomes here the symbol of Narcissus, using water, a major constituent of its own body. Through its reflection, it projects itself outwards, manifesting itself as an object upon its existential essence, unique and dual at the same time.

Avida Diva, 2010

Dans la peinture Avida Diva l’artiste joue avec de douces nuances de gris et propose l’image d’un grand singe observant son reflet dans un miroir. Un miroir d'eau. Le singe, par sa nature de primate, devient ici le symbole d’un Narcisse originel instrumentalisant l’eau, constituant majeur de son être. Par son reflet, il se projette vers l’extérieur et se manifeste comme objet face à son essence existentielle, unique et double à la fois.
