less is more
or work “to remove”
The work “to take off”, less is more, in art, in sculpture and in his artistic research is a methodology that does not belong to all, is comparable to the dry process of alchemical research, and intrinsically linked to the philosophy and Japanese aesthetic criterion wabi- sabi, but also it has its roots in zen.
Certain zen teachings so dear to me, koans, like, “nothing to do nothing to undo,” make me literally go crazy, give me the torment, sometimes while driving, while I work or do the things normal people, yes even the artists do their shopping, of course forgetting half of the need, I go back to visit the koan, a job to take off. The dry way in alchemy seems to be popular because it is dangerous, is that of the cavalry, the enthusiasm, the fire, the passion and intuition, that of jumps without the safety net in contrast with the wet, monk, maceration, reflection, weighting and already you understand where I stand … one can not pursue a way of life in the alchemical-chivalric style, taking with him the false dimensions, is the work to remove, once again less is more. Transporting the work to take off in a philosophical aesthetic concept we face the wabi-sabi, which nicely summarizes characteristics of vitality, warmth, simplicity and the famous less is more.
What does it mean to apply the less is more to their existence? It ‘a drainage system, distillation, to say to the Hegelian thesis-antithesis-synthesis continues. What happens, what you choose, what you buy, how people dress, work, relationships, pass through a sieve, for verification cycles. It takes away what is too much, gestures, phrases, catch, accessories, ideas … less is more is a “Ryanair, fly cheaper ticket” with a few kilos of luggage. What are the benefits? As I mentioned earlier a constant renewal, a progressive approach to themselves, true. Ensured as an antidote against the boredom and keep your marriage, work …… if they resist course.
