Light has always represented divine, spiritual, incorporeal. Constantly in contrast to shadow, aimed at giving volume to matter. Above all expression of the original Energy. A subject which has always fascinated artists, from the Byzantine, to Impressionist passing for Caravaggio. It is perfectly described by the works by Maria Teresa Gonzalez Ramirez (a Mexican sculptress who lives and works in Varese), Tomàs Martínez Suñol (a painter who lives and works in the Catalan city of Badalona) and Luca Gastaldo (a young artist from Milan), the protagonists of LIGHT &NERGY. Three ways of interpreting, through painting and sculpture, the countless worthiness of this universe. Nothing is more impalpable, unseizable, real than Light, key element which gives shape and value to reality. Expression of divine, spiritual, incorporeal, Light underlines what only exists within formal perfection or the exaltation of volumes, within the contrast between empties and full, where void becomes luminous absence. Light brings reality into reality, allowing the manifestation of the spiritual. It must also be considered as the original Energy, from which anything was born, so that through it life itself can be and give birth. The theme "LIGHT &NERGY" is so fascinating, probably more than any else, that artists have focused upon it since the beginning of Time. Frontal, oblique, suffused, violent, dazzling, soft Light: thinking about its countless qualifiers, it turns out that each of them can be associated to a different and clearly perceivable quantity of energy. The works exposed at the PUNTO SULL'ARTE gallery represent its perfect dictionary.
