Contemporary hand painted painting – Zebras

Contemporary hand painted painting – Zebras

Disegno Zebre

The zebra is an apparently tranquil animal, but of a wild and unpredictable nature that lives in a herd.

Thanks to its mantle, it is associated with the duality of light and shadow, free spirit and common sense.

Precisely for this reason there are different symbolic meanings.

According to some, the zebra teaches to find the right balance to be realized in all aspects of life, it evades danger and this is the key to its survival. The force of freedom, the power of deception towards enemies.

It also represents the discovery is the observation of self. More squat of the horse but rich in meaning.

 

The painting Zebres is a contemporary work, made of acrylic on canvas 100X70, where two examples are hand painted in affectionate attitude, almost a hug that deceives the view, making it seem that they blend into each other dissolving into the canvas.

Their coat is crossed by color that flows through the canvas from top to bottom, to awaken the gaze and to represent the colors of energy.

Contemporary art exhibition “Animus et Anima”

“Every man has a woman in himself and every woman has a man in him.”

These are the words of C. G. Jung, psychoanalyst and anthropologist, according to which Animus and Anima are the two archetypes that give us perhaps better than others a vision of how dual being can be.

 

This is the theme of the contemporary art exhibition “Animus et Anima” which will take place from 23 February to 6 March 2019, in the San Severo al Pendino complex, in via Duomo in Naples.

In this exhibition will also be exposed the latest work of the painter Monica Caiazzo made giving free interpretation and expression to the theme of dualism between male and female.

The exhibition will last 12 days and on the 23rd and 24th it will be an opportunity to meet her, as Monica Caiazzo will attend the room.

 

Monica Caiazzo Animus Et Anima

His work therefore defines the SOUL that feminine energy present in the psyche of man and ANIMUS that masculine energy present in the psyche of the woman.

Just as every feeling contains its opposite, hatred coexists with love, submission with prevarication, conscious with the unconscious, duality also applies to the two biological kinds, the masculine and the feminine.

So the SOUL is defined as that feminine energy present in the psyche of man and ANIMUS that masculine energy present in the psyche of the woman.

Present in the collective imagination forever and metaphorized in dreams and in art, the Soul brings to consciousness the principle of EROS, or love, that is, stimulates union, the Animus brings to consciousness the principle of LOGOS, or reason, that is, it emphasizes the distinction: the Soul means bond, union, protection, affectivity, care, maintenance, while the Animus specularly means reflexivity, control, analysis, weighting, rationality, calculation, decision, programming, distinction.

Only the perfect integration of both these two forces, masculine and feminine, embracing and maintaining the two energies, will lead the individual to the harmonization of his being, just as a candle is the whole of light and shadow.

 

Award cerimony The Call of Angels

We are proud to announce that on 03/06/2018, Monica Caiazzo was rewarded in the city of Mercogliano as first classified for her painting that took part in the competition called “the call of the angels”.

This work is dedicated to two very young boys and their untimely death.
The intent of the author is not to represent the pain of loss or suffering of the disease, but wants to convey the serenity and light-heartedness, typical of the young age of the boys to whom the competition is dedicated.
The two are sitting in the sky and playing with soap bubbles, her gaze is directed towards the viewer as if to convey the sense of peace that she herself feels. Behind them the Divine light, symbol of the loving presence of the Father who watches over all of us.

The painting will remain on permanent display in the library of the Loreto Abbey of Mercogliano.

Hand painted Tree of life

Hand painted Tree of life

Hand painted Tree of Life is a work realized on three canvases:

  • Central body 80×60
  • Side panels of 50 x 70

The central body is the fulcrum of representation: the tree, with its thick foliage, represents fertility and sharing.

The branches intertwine to form hearts, as well as the bodies of man and woman, which are born from the earth and form the trunk. From this vital energy here is a child, a symbol of continuity and of the future.

All the representation can be read by dividing it into two halves:

  1. from the left, the night that includes the elements of air and water with the link between the moon and the tides.
  2. looking to the right, you can see the day, which includes the elements of fire and earth, the latter contains the energy of the universe thanks to the mandala symbols with which it is decorated.

Played almost entirely in shades of gray, the only note of contrasting color of the painting is the red of the heart placed in the central body and representing love, strength and blood.

The hand painted Mermaid is a representation that shows at the bottom of the sea a beautiful enchanting siren, whose red fin, thanks to the full strokes and the color decided , is radiant and stands out in the deep blue of the abyss succeeding in capturing the gaze of the observer.

The mermaid’s hair spreads over the water and the braids give life to a vaporous effect.

It is a mystery because it shows modesty and tries to hide its nudity as if someone could even see it at the bottom of the sea.
