Federico De Cicco aka Zumar7, presents a selection of paintings based on Tarkovsky’s movies as well as a reflection on the considerations below:
As a flash of misty light
that left me dazed and astonished
this is how I came across Andrey Tarkovsky for the very first time.
From that truly alive moment
to the next one and the next one and the other,
each time going somewhere else which I did not dare to go before,
each time opening a locked door.
The power of art, seen as an intimate journey,
is the one that allows yourself to travel inwardly
until reaching your true nature.
Mine is the one of a child in a world of meanings and colours and for this realisation I wish to pay an homage to the Russian film maker and artist Andrei Tarkovsky.
