Drawings from Lightning is an artists book, including 30 drawings and 1 photograph made by artists on the theme of lightning "Positive Leaders", a natural phenomenon where the lightning starts from the ground reaching the sky: the artist's metaphor. It is a "solar work". I want to give my interpretation of it in the mean of a spaceship, a capsule that wins the time, the years, getting to 2317! The space-time prospectives are unlimited but the roots are very old, in fact, I have always been fascinated by the prints and drawings that preserve intact their beauty, their mystery; particularly P. P. Rubens "Palazzi di Genova" (Antwerp - 1622) who designed an entire collection of prints of the Palaces of Genova or P. Brueghel who worked on drawings as prints reproductions of the works of H. Bosch. A way to raise awareness and support the work of architects, artists and works by other artists, they were able to project them in other places and times.
In order to thank them and their gestures I created my project involving the artists with whom I share this principle of relationship with the Cosmos,
an exchange that we strengthen through the way we live through our artistic research driven by positive energy, moved by unshakable trust.
Now who wants to be part of the process of carrying out this art work of the future?"
