Arte Divina

Our artist's life commitment and dedication to art are immense. It resonates passion, beauty and intensity beyond words. Centred around the concept of creation and the act of creating. Like in religious tradition the one that creates is divine and of divine intention. Strictly focusing on inspiration, symbolism, philosophy, creativity, and imagination. 

The double crosses symbolise the void or the abyss.
"If you look long enough into the abyss, the abyss begins to look back through you." 
- Friedrich Nietzsche

The abyss is a kind of monster, the monster of complete cynicism and true nihilism - the empty man that post-modernism seems to favour. Pursuing an utter lack of beauty, life values and aesthetics leaves one empty, and perhaps incapable of recovering one's artistic nature. 'Arte Divina' greatly values beauty as an essential virtue of art. The double cross is a symbol that rebels against the apathy and the defeatist culture and post-modernism gave birth to this trend. When I was at University studying art and design we were taught how to deconstruct and to break down values, leaving no room for aesthetics or emotions with no appreciation for beauty.

"In an age of ugliness, a work of beauty is an act of defiance. At any time between 1750 and 1930, if you asked educated people to describe the aim of poetry, art or music, they would have replied “beauty.” And if you had asked for the point of that you would have learned that beauty is a value, as important as truth and goodness. Then in the 20th-century beauty stopped being important. Art increasingly aimed to disturb and to break moral taboos. It was not beauty but originality however achieved and at whatever moral cost that won the prizes. Not only has art made a cult of ugliness. Our language, our music and our manners are increasingly raucous, self-centred and offensive as though beauty and good taste have no real place in our lives."
- Sir Roger Scruton
