In the naked bodies of women, you can feel an almost mystical peace and the concepts of space and time, seem suspended. Women embellished with silver and gold.
Goddesses, princesses, whose drama is shattered and lightened by unusual colors, occupy virtual spaces not distinguishable by human eyes. They have dimensions suitable for thought and they contort themselves to occupy and dominate it. And in intimate thought they are welcomed with respect and esteem, with admiration and pleasure.
The female body is assumed as a deity. The tension to perfection, made exasperated by the attention to detail, returns, in its achievement, a mandala of sinuous shapes, textures and intertwining of breaths.
Currently Elido Turco, is working on a project related to Dante Alighieri, a tribute to the poet par excellence to commemorate his death 700 years ago. He is inspired by the female figures in the Divine Comedy, interpreting them in his own way.
