The fearful Agata, with shuted eyes, guided her shadows (acrylic, copper foil and pencil on panel 60 x 24 in (152.4 x 61 cm)
This painting is about a woman who became blind because the world hurt her eyes. Without haste, she consciously abandoned herself to the dark. She did not consider the world a place worthy of being seen, so she used to lay in solitude. The woman became grim, misogynistic, just wanted to inflict on others the same pain that tormented her soul. She then began to tear the eyes of the women who were paying attention to her; sewing them in her dress so that it could be a warning to anyone who approached her. One day, two sisters, both blind from birth, came upon her path. The lonely, angry woman tore their eyes and added them to her collection. But the moment she did, the sisters saw the world through her. Despite the woman's reluctance, the sisters no longer wanted to part with her, worthy of having given them this precious gift. The woman felt condemned to wander around the world and show the young people and their uncorrupted and hungry eyes what they had never been able to see. Through their gaze she saw the world; through their stories she saw it for the first time. The uninhabited soul of the woman continued to sink into her blindness, and never realized the true gift that life had made to her.
This picture is about an angel, an urban angel. The lights of the city protect him from this heavy and polluted air. His wings are broken, but he doesn't even know when it happened. He woke up one day and his wings no longer flew. Then, to look at the sky, and not to lose any of the nuances of the place where he comes from, and to which it feels he belongs, he painted a thousand eyes on his feathers. The earth now is a hostile place; humans do not need him. He takes refuge; he seeks shelter under a too small leaf. There is no safe place for him, and his broken wings crumble. He is forgotten by the world.
