Risco Arisco

Risco Arisco

Risky Risk

(Translating I realized it could be called Risky Risk rather than Shy Dash or anything else, since Risco may be Dash or Risk. It would be a great title)

 

My briefing

 

From The Cherubinic Wanderer (Mahwah: Paulista Press, 1986), Angelus Silesius, Sec VII, I drew the direction for a set I was doing: Risky Risk (risking the risk or risking the dash, to be understood)

I read in Silesius things like:

 

“The rose does not have why
It blooms because it blooms.
Does not care about itself
do not ask if someone sees"...

 

In John Lanchester, Debt to Pleasure:
"An artist should be evaluated for what he did
not do"


Myself:
"Simple or nothing."

 

Here's the risk.

The result was a sequence of dashes (scratches) some with nylon or cotton thread (again risk) others with the minimum. Only one with a title.

 

Risking Angelus Silesius demanded more elaboration, which I did on black background.

Still Angelus Silesius.

"I do not know what I am, I'm not what I know: just one thing, then nothing, a small dot in the circle" This is there in the Threshold of the Visible   (Limiar do Visivel) collection.
