May Circle. Giovanni Gambasin Biafarin
The series dedicated to the rim is the first made by Gambasin after a long period of inactivity.
In all the designs that make it up, «the circle» is represented using black and white, for the background, and single color, different for each of them. To understand and appreciate these works it is impossible not to make at least a brief reference to some of the many philosophical meanings and to the complex symbolism that has always accompanied this figure.
The circle, in many cultures, especially in the ancient ones, represents the state of primordial substance, uniform, and undifferentiated. It is free of oppositions, such as, for example, high/low, in reference to the concepts of equality and harmony. It symbolizes the sky and with it both the dimension of spirituality, of the non-tangible existence and the eternal cycle
Of life. The circle also plays an important role in the world of magic according to which the «magic circles» served as protection against the evoked forces and threatening presence.
In the works that make up the series, the color seems to radiate from the circle traced as energy that originates from it and therefore expands. The spiritual dimension wants to impose
Itself on materiality. The latter is exemplified by the background, in black and white, composed of an interweaving of figures including recognizable faces, some assorted, others sad and melancholic.
It could be the fall into a reality that arouses such moods combined with the fear of never being able to rise to something higher. But all this sadness and bewilderment, which become almost palpable, also seem, in some way, to prophesy the dramatic the moment that the world, whose globality is represented by the circle has faced due to the pandemic that fell there in early 2020. On the other hand, one of the characteristics of art is precisely
That of being able, at the moment of its manifestation, to anticipate what will come, to perceive something that is precluded to the human senses.
