Three Graces
OIL ON CANVAS. ORIGINAL SIZE 20x25 in

  • In the ancient world, the graces represented everything that constituted the beauty and attractiveness of life.
  • The graces often escorted the winged god, Amour.
  • They were invited to the opening of all celebrations in order to bring gentle festivity and quiet harmony to those present.
  • The three graces are always depicted embracing each other, and their main goal was to provide people with all that adorns life and makes them happy.

Inevitably, time is moving on. The mythopoetic background transforms this into a game that possesses unrivalled vitality and beauty: a top controlled by an unseen hand and a stranger's will entertains the viewers. As the spinning of each top winds down and its spring breaks, the toy is forgotten and joins other discarded things off stage. Present on stage is the conciseness of inspiration, the moment of a successful performance, time compressed into a single point like the vortex of a cone.
