I sing to space

Una volta sognai il signore dei desideri, mi chiese di andare con lui ed abbandonare tutto, ma io restai con tutto me stesso al mio posto.

Questo sono, altro non so.

Questo sono, altro non so.

O fuoco che tutto proteggi, illumini, scaldi, unisci, matura la fiamma, trasforma i passi. O fuoco figli tuoi, apparteniamo, liberaci dalla menzogna, dall’essere sleale, dall’apparire senza sostanza. Brucia legna secca, dona fertilità alla terra che ospita.

Dalla terra bruciata che hai fatto intorno a me, ho piantato fiori.

Una voce mi è stata rivelata.

A voice was revealed to me

Una voce mi è stata rivelata.

Una voce mi è stata rivelata.

Da Occidente a Oriente, da Oriente a Occidente, un faro ha illuminato il sentiero. Nuvole bianche viaggiano, colorano la luna, si riempiono di luce, nutrono la calda terra del sole. Anima del mondo, quanto umile e regale non confondo, a te devoto l’incontro. Sabbia dei deserti, disseti il disegno del vento, pietra delle montagne, dai voce all’eco del risveglio.

Capanne in riva al mare, dolce notte culla il sogno di un bambino che nasce.
Nome dei colori, carattere dei fiori, frutti profumati nutrono la fantasia di ricordi che verranno. Letto di un fiume, scorre silenzioso, foglie tornano alla madre. Tamburi respirano canti di pace. Parole pronunciate da cuori semplici.

Un giorno andando in tipografia, ho visto delle vecchie lastre del calendario del mio amico Claudio. Le ho prese e me li sono portate a casa per vedere cosa potevo realizzare, d’un tratto mi balenò l’idea di fare il cubo mondo, poiché nelle lastre si vedono come degli ominidi “ed il mondo è pieno di uomini diversi ma uguali”. Sperando di fargli un gradito regalo al mio amico Claudio.

Lentini e Carlentini needs love

Sicily Contemporary Artist

intellectual art

Quei fantastici pianetini

La forma perfetta, l’acqua arrotonda lo spigolo, la goccia modellata dal vento, l’argilla umile e potente elemento terra, assorbe l’energia della preghiera. Tondi, morbidi, il tempo li colora, in continua mutazione sono memoria di pace, a riempire un ferro fuoriuscente, a connettersi nutrirsi del loro sguardo, sposarsi discretamente con la pietra scolpita. Sentire prima di vedere, le mani li arrotondano in un mondo senza barriere, armonici parlano, suonano l’inno alla luce del fuoco, emanano calore, fra vento e pioggia loro vivono, respirano, rendono il passato presente, il futuro contemporaneo. Arte e meditazione, azione del perdono, filosofia semplice, passo dopo passo, assorbono e vengono assorbiti.

He lives of Art, and his own Art is nourished by his love.

Italian

DOCUMENTARY 

Da grande voglio fare il Santo.

Da grande voglio fare il Santo.

Edited by Maria Cristina Torrisi

His Art is dance. It’s prayer.

He has traveled, he has seen, and he has witnessed life. A life that he wanted to dedicate to Love, Union, to the desire to see beyond that “beyond” that has no limits, nor spaces that border.

The key messages of his precious work are peace, serenity, harmony, contamination of positive energy that can bring about a dialectic linked to a universal language.

Claudio Arezzo di Trifiletti is the dreamy and concrete artist. He grew up in the city but has always savored nature, immersed in the countryside, falling asleep underneath the stars. He loves nature because he believes in its immense creative force that is already prayer. “I continue to create, I find my prayer there.” And his prayer is also revealed in the intimacy of the work that proves him to be a Mediterranean artist: “A brush glides, crosses, traces. Lines meet, creating containers, bodies embrace, which narrate the life that continues. ”

In his poetry “Lampedusa” he reveals: “There is a kind of intelligence that enhances the experience of living, an ‘emotional intelligence’:  the ability to feel, to be moved, to ‘understand with one’s heart.’” You have to create a fairy tale to live better.

The artist is a man first of all, a man who doesn’t pretend, whose heroic act is a tangible testimony to the authenticity of the works that he realizes: “a hero is the one who lives in a story that does not revel, who fights monsters by making peace, humiliates the enemy by loving him; the hero does not ask for compensation, he does not live among incense, he does not ask for consensus, he has a heart that burns, and a soul where words have a following. The hero does not fight for himself, but for those he loves.  A hero does not exist without love,” he says.

Love for Life, in the sacred sense of the term, is widely found in his works:

“It is chromatic dynamism in a burst of colors that bring a dreamlike dimension to the existing combination of myth, philosophy and dream. In fact, these are the elements that characterize the work of Claudio Arezzo di Trifiletti that are manifest to the fullness of life and the “magical visions” that contrast between what is real and what is fictional.

Faces and figures that follow, intertwine, amalgamate in order to undertake a journey, a spiritual journey as well. In the characters there is the artist, the soul of the “creator” who expresses himself with his thoughts, free and constantly evolving, in the constant pursuit of self-knowledge. And here he reveals himself, through his work, to focus on the concepts, the wise philosophy of man who devotes his life entirely to art to “surrender to the world” and to entrust especially his “inner dimension”.  Keen observer of what is around him, in his work the soul emerges, free from any social convention. The spirits of those who flee from appearance to actually give life and voice to the essential emerge. “

He is a figure of light, no doubt. But we would like to find out more: in what context does he live? How does he work? What energy feeds his thought as a charming and charismatic man? Who really is this artist considered multi-talented?

Lavinia D’Agostino writes of him: “He transforms everything that happens to end up in his hands: from an old TV set to a plow disc, from an old family ring to the one found in the dumpster. Claudio Arezzo di Trifiletti, a direct descendant of the Sicilian noble family, is a versatile artist.”

Steeped in Christian faith and a strong spirituality, he lives in a house that looks like a museum with a large private collection of paintings, installations and many memories. “For me home means a nest, protection, container, warmth,” he says welcoming us. Already on the landing there is a large mural: “It represents the union between East and West – explains the artist – with candles on Japan, in memory of the Fukushima disaster.” Below are the stones, from Mt. Etna, and even pieces of wood carvings and because the artist lives in a world of connections where nothing is random, for his art is inspired by objects, or rather, by the vibrations that they transmit, the story that they bring with them. “I very much believe in the vibrations of the earth through which we are connected with the whole world.” Claudio defines himself as a tool, rather than an artist, an intermediary of a higher project: “When I paint I’m in a state of semi-trance, everything is prompted by feelings, emotions and signals.” Whatever his inspiration might be, in the large apartment in which he lives, on a fifth floor in the center of Catania, you can breathe a positive energy. Here everything is colored, painted, regenerated.

Claudio Arezzo di Trifiletti is a man with special sensitivity, perhaps old-fashioned, but still rare. After a trip to India he understood that he had to follow the road of art. From there the first exhibitions. First in Paris and then at the Empire State Building in New York where he took the fruit of a work that for 68 days had all of Manahttan as its subject. That’s how Imprints  was born: his great artistic project that connects the world through the footprints left by passers-by. In these years he has collected footprints in 15 countries, and once he was back home he painted them turning them into magnificent works of art.

Imprints is just one of the many projects he has carried out in recent years. Moved by the desire to sow love and union, for three years he sent a piece of the same canvas, along with a message of peace, to the Italian ambassadors abroad and foreign ambassadors in Italy.

Francesca Cuffari, in her precious interview, uses opening words so dear to the artist:

“Art is his life and his life itself is art, in a seamless relationship, in which man is ‘a spark within a body’.” An expression so dear to the artist from Catania recognized throughout the world for the important communications-contamination activities in which he is personally involved.

But what it is art for him? “It is a companion with whom to share one’s life, not just a profession to be exercised in time. It is an integral part. Picasso supported the idea that art was a deception capable of telling the truth. How can we contradict him?”, he reveals in his interview.

“My idea is to convey the feeling of a boy who raises a thousand questions. My road is projected to find the child that I have inside. Because children are the expression of purity. They do not feel the desire for possessions, but only want to capture the attention of adults. If I became an adult I’d act out the script of a crisis, of grayness and of those everyday speeches. But the real crisis, one that few talk about, is the crisis of thought: we constantly see prepackaged thoughts and without content and that is boring.”

The artist reveals “a creativity all-round”. Over the top, not classifiable. For years he has gone through the process of research in a constant coming and going between the past and the future without forgetting the child that is inside. A sensitive soul that draws lifeblood from his Catania, “which has the power of a volcano set in the land of the three peaks, Sicily, but that still lives in a condition of conservatism.”

The concept of Art takes on many forms. For him it is pure vision put into circulation.

Imprints in the Minoriti courtyard of Catania is also a story you will not forget: “Take the weight of each footprint, dance around them, bind them through love, travel inside the union, feel the warmth, get lost inside their heart, and then relax, look at all the colors.”

And then, here is the force of nature benevolently imposing itself in the leaves in geometric shapes. 39 paintings. Like the watermark of a leaf, as unique as the painting, and at the same time linked with the others as they all come from the same tree. They are leaves collected during a sunrise. Path, tool, travel are three words that precede the dream. We are all leaves from the same tree.

Claudio Arrezzo Trifiletti is many steps ahead. His Art certainly denounces, denounces the evils of the world, but also finds solutions. Thoughts on the writing of “Breathe Art Catania” are a good example: “Catania excites me, it is a soul singing, a dancing heart” …

“I walk, I meet, I see, and before that I feel,” he says. Yes, because through painting, he decodes what he cannot see but what he can feel as his guides are inside feelings. So what warns the artist in the expression of his work, through the colors that bring him to a higher dimension? In his Spring Acrylic painting, he expresses the dimension of thought, which dips into the horizon of a spark that is born to love; in fluid painting the eye sees and reflects what he feels; constructing the acrylic painting confirms his faith on the understanding that “all things are possible to those who believe”, that “love is the center of the Universe” and even “Sovereign of all life is consciousness” and that “there is no growth without error”.

In this “fantastic” trip, he continues his colorful visions in his works: Family acrylic paintings, Codes, Imprints Venice and even poetic Act Venice, in that place which is witness to inspiration: “imprinting means leaving traces.”

And there is his connection to Venice Italy needs love. The happy future is to look beyond appearances. “When we are connected, words are superfluous.”

It’s a path. Claudio Arezzo di Trifiletti takes us by the hand: Moments Acrylic Paintings, Red Blue, Conceptual Art, Memory Artist Sicily – in which the concept of memory, symbols, and geometry that chooses the center emerges, leading to balance – Also, Introspection & Garden, Lighting and Resolution, Concentration, Reconstruction, Contemplation and Regeneration …….

And then the volcano Aeolian Sicily Acrylic paintings.

How to define the explosion of ideas, thoughts, energy?

Daniela Aquilia, in her review, writes that the source of inspiration are not objects, places or people, but the energy emanating from the matter which becomes the track on which to paint the hectic contemporary communities, bombarded daily by the media. A key to understanding the artist’s work is the underground culture.

There is light in his works like in Notes of Light, described by Carmelo Arezzo Trifiletti as “work that expresses energy and color balance.”

Тело в движение содержит жизнь, свидетельство тому наблюдается в следах его движения, такие следы, как все, что существует на земле и на небе, и для неба это понимается никак материя, а как вибрация. Вибрация является основой даже одного написанного слова, даже одна точка имеет вибрацию. Время есть вибрация, пространство, материя, небеса, во всем содержится вибрация. Вибрация это энергия, это как сказать огонь есть свет, являются основой жизни, и жизнь это основа вибрации. Тем самым я хочу объяснить, что на всем пути до настоящего момента, я был свидетелем многих доказательств, которые основали во мне веру в мое искусство такую сильную, что я признаю, что единственным источником, которым я могу питаться это жизнь, и единственная современная история, которую я могу написать это жизнь, никак я это вижу, а потому как я это чувствую. Чтобы услышать ее, я начал использовать пыль старой мебели, старой, поскольку она тоже живет и содержит память о своем пути, и все то, что вмещала в себя, …камень кратера, и так далее со всем, что попадалось, самым случайным образом, мне в руки. Я всегда предпочитал использовать грязную воду, цвета в которой всегда смешаны, маловероятно чтобы я сушил кисть перед ее использованием, я предпочел быть причастным к цвету, и лояльным к передаче. В смешивании веществ различных видов также непредсказуемых, я сразу понял, что в тот момент я совершаю почти ритуал, условия создания искажаются, как минимум, для системы. Со Следами я глубоко удовлетворяю свое желание чувствовать, через само полотно, которое растоптали множество людей, где даже сами люди не осознавали, что они дали полотну больше жизни, чем просто отпечаток. Общий видимый след, где один след является больше чем просто вес, он выделяет вибрацию, эта вибрация есть движение, а движение распространяется посредством мысли, таким образом полотно пропитано мыслью следа, и основополагающая фаза это, что имеющаяся вибрация сама сливается с той в прошлом заложенной, иначе говоря, что есть само полотно, и с той будущей вибрацией зрителя, который увидит законченную работу, создавая универсальное зеркало для лучей времени. Когда я пишу, это как будто я получаю данные от того, к чему я прикасаюсь, похоже, как если бы я переводил эти вибрации через мое уже начатое путешествие, и которое еще должно было начаться. Когда я пишу, действительно очень мало случаев, чтоб я думал об успехе, тем временем я думаю, что мы все взаимосвязаны с событиями, которые проходят незамеченными в наших глазах, и только когда эти события обретают форму, мы видим связь. Как если принять во внимание, зная, что все, что мы пережили до сегодняшнего дня, привело бы нас в другое измерение, если бы мы жили по-другому, это как видеть события, не ища им объяснения, но найти в себе силы, чтобы видеть их, как ответ. Вот я, в моем малом, собираю следы, чтобы написать их и объединить между собой, и когда я пишу, иногда это как будто я вытягиваю воду из колодца, порой с такой страстью, что я чувствую жажду.
