SACRAL TECHNICS ||| Spring Summer 2014

Sacral-Technics is a collection that explores and converges into a single vision the sacredness of Christian iconography and tribal elements to an Industrial/Technological scenario.
This double inspiration runs through diametrically different visions: the baroque opulence of churches and Christian nativity is combined with details of voodoo matrix and put in contrast with the monolithic architecture of Berlin and the monumentality of modular buildings according to the stylistic signature of architects such as Louis Kahn , Daniel Libeskind and Tadao Ando.

From the moodboard: Nicola Samorì

"Nicola Samorì makes seductive, profound paintings by layering and fusing images on canvas, woodor copper and then obliterating them by scratching, erasing, fingering and painting over the surfacesmultiple times. The resulting layersof paint create a new skin that bears the bruises and permanent marks of all prior creative efforts. Selecting portraits and still lifes from classical paintings but also sourcing random faces and imagesfrom the Web, Samorì is engaged in a project about time and corrosion. Mythological and religiousfigures dominate Samorì canvasses."
