In an exhibition recently displayed in the sumptuous location of the Ducal Palace of Sabbioneta, the paintings by Silvia Caimi propose the theme “Jump”, the physical thrust that continues to represent Man’s aspiration towards transcendence and essence.
The exhibition will open at the Italian Cultural Institute in San Francisco on 9 February.
Silvia Caimi’s artistic research, which is strongly influenced by her classical studies, focuses on the neo-Platonic school of thought of Plotinus, who believed that phenomena and forms were the faint image or imitation of something “loftier and more understandable” which was the “truest part of authentic Being”.
Silvia Caimi proposes to discover our real being by looking into the mirrored image of the beauty of her figures, gorgeously evolving bodies, in which the athletic “jumping” motion represents the temporal passing and moral evolution of Man surrendering to his destiny. The exhibition will run until 9 March.
