It’s possible to build a genetic world or a mathematical world or as the Kabbalah has done, a world where words were the structure of every alive thought or feeling. It’s is possible to draw a two-dimensional or a three-dimensional place or a place full of air or appalling smells, a place without images, only with tactile sensations as the daily routine of a blind. It’s possible to build with our hands or blood, or with ethereal smiles and strong intentions.
Peace or war, smoke or water, stone or breeze, roses or monkeys… There are (and there were) so many realities, objective or subjective realities (and these last ones have received the name of Art).
Rafaela Art has learnt to build with colors, brilliant colors full of meanings which fight to construct a happy world of personal shapes, so exciting forms that they jump out of the strict frame to hug us with a healthy effect.
Daily, I see her works, her intuitive paintings of a lost Paradise, of a legend still no written and which is born with every brush, in a feedback with a spectator never indifferent to her spectacular works.
Rafaela says her paintings are part of her beliefs and, of course, they are true paintings born of her deepest dreams, but they are part of my beliefs too. Beliefs that start in front of those wonderful colors which question about forgotten meanings: are colors a possible medicine? Does good humor help me? Can happy sensations heal my wounds?
Rafaela Art is a therapy, a painless therapy waiting for us, calling us beyond the canvas, just on the other side, where myths and fantasy are living for ever never and where we can build a better world, a future white sea.
That is Art, true Art
