Product Overview

Nature becomes a transparent mirror, joining the vanquished and the victorious, reflected cross, line of suture.-Patriazia Fazzi

With this book by Patrizia Fazzi, those fond of the art of Piero della Francesca have an unusual guide: poetry, a different language intended to mirror the painting, to capture its spiritual nuances and the creative processes embodied in the finished work. The Arezzo poet has been attuned for a number of years to the spirituality of Piero, trying to fathom his serene impassiveness, to arrest light with the written word. In this intense volume-The Shell of Being-Patrizia Fazzi has modulated her language by adopting two expressive registers. One is terse, measured, as though the words were carved in stone. The other, with a tone that rises toward more lyrical moments, grasps the symbology, the metaphysical afflatus, the message, the "mystery" of each painting that has captured the emotion of her intellect. To the reader the pleasure of reading the poems while viewing the pictures.-From the foreword by Luciano Luisi
