ARTIST STATEMENT « BLUE VACUITY »



This is not a usual artist statement for a series of photographs. The real artist statement is incorporated in the first two photos of the series. In fact « Blue Vacuity » on which I worked fourteen months, is a follow-up of the series « Dancing in the Emptiness ». The all blue photos are inspired by the colour blue of the the aether, represented by a Stupa in the Buddhist cemetery of Koyasan, Japan. The top of it is blue : the invisble ocean of pure consciousness.

The 25 images (including those on the recto and verso of the album I composed) are meant as doors to eternity. If you choose one of them you can try to transcendence it and then, perhaps, it opens the source of life, pure consciousness, where you find bliss, love, truth, peace and freedom. You left the empty dreamworld in which you were living.

In the presentation included is the photo on the cover, and eventually the picture on the back. Of course this series is an experiment, nothing more.
