Art excites.
Because it shows that there are really no limits to dreams and creativity.
Categorically opposed to the concept of art for art’s sake, Alessia Mattia is convinced that art should not be an end in itself, but should explain the meaning of life: the mission is to work for the spiritual improvement of mankind..
The completed form is in its original sense a spiritual creation, an incarnation based on purely ethical factors supporting the evolution and unity of peoples.
And as Dante ascends through the various heavens of paradise, gaining an ever deeper understanding of divinity and the universe, Orpheus descends into the realm of the dead to try to bring his beloved Eurydice back to life, facing numerous challenges along the way. Two opposing literary examples but perpetually ‘in motion’.
Anabasis and Catabasis, terms derived from the Greek (Αναβασις and Καταβασις) and symbolising the search, growth and transformation, already belong to her in the atavistic representation of the unconfessed. The disfigurement of real values, whose hallmarks of a civilisation are nothing more than an obvious moral imbalance, ‘swirls’ between the lines of the contrasting paintings, in a play of references, environments, light, styles and hues that, as in a modern matryoshka, emerge tyrannically. One ascends and descends in a permanent vortex through the works of Alessia Mattia, an exegesis of what she has so far managed to transpose onto canvas, despite being so young.
