  E71 - PLAYER OF AULOS - end 2006
E73 - RURAL WALK IN ETRURIA - 2007 / Painting Acrylic / 49,2 x 74,8 inches / 15300 USD

Description: ETRUSCAN / Acrylic on canvas 125 x 190 cm - 49,2 x 74,8 inches / (Text translated by Google) / As the chart E71 - Aulos player, the charter pictorial series Etruscan remains the same: the characters always come to an oval or oval, for a symbolic passing of the past in our present? Inspired by Greek obvious. The reasons for this table are largely a bronze situla rejected the grave Capodaglio 38. What do we see? The image of a quiet couple of walkers Etruscan, accompanied by a family of deer and a dog. A stylized lotus blossom in the jaw of the deer and decorative palm leaves in the sky. The man who could be a priest, holding in one hand a cross-shaped emblem, borrowed from the goddess of animals Potnia Theron, in the other hand, a cartridge with Etruscan inscription: Philhelm. If the woman's face has been revised and corrected from the original, the man's scrupulously respects the characteristic figures of the era. The woman holds the Philhelm monogram, or a triple signing converted three times in this table. Etruscan: In Latin Tuscii, people who lived in Etruria, the present-day Tuscany and northern Lazio, is the center of the Italian peninsula. Their culture was born in the first millennium BC, with a peak between the seventh and fifth century BC Their language, undeciphered to date, however, is a slightly different Greek alphabet, which gave birth to the Latin alphabet! Their origin is East, indeed the resemblance between some Etruscan tombs and other Asia Minor, and certain aspects of their culture seems much more oriental qu'italiques, as the pleasure of luxury, love for parties and dances, and their practice of hepatoscopy or analysis of liver victims to make predictions. Situla: situla the vase was truncated with the narrowed-down, sharp edge to the shoulder or slightly rounded, broad, short neck, the flat lid barely rounded or pointed at the center. Large situlae of all materials were part of the equipment of the temples. Small in size, equipped with a handle, the situlae calcite, earthenware or metal used to carry water from spraying ritual. Its use in growing fields of urns. Potnia Theron : Mistress of Animals = Title ancient Goddess Minoan Crete in the Aegean Sea between 2700-1450 BC. Also represented in Asia Minor and Greece where it was called Artemis, still represented surrounded by and other animals, often rampant.

In actual fact, I want to tell you without misrepresentation, the whole story of Philhelm, which begins in Alsace (It was still a Germanic country and will become French only in 1678!) in the castle of Lichtenberg, on April 23rd 1616, when the seven-year-old Balthasar Helmlinger, loses the Monogram of his eponymy descendant. This ordinary but nevertheless very serious incident in the distant past will set in motion the artistic calling of one of his descendants, ten generations later! This contemporary painter, born in Strasbourg in 1943, has only exhibited his work twice in his life (1999 and 2001) and only at the "International Biennial Event of Contemporary Art of Florence" which awarded him in 1999 the Prize of the City of Florence. So that the ordinary people be completely disorientated, so that it will let the story of the past enter him torpidly, by going back the furthermost possible or else it will never pierce the heart of his paintings, to seek there the secret causes of things.
Philhelm declines the colors in a correspondence with the images and original writings to a small history of the past, in wich his monogram was always present as an archetype. This revival for a few years, he has tried to reveal it because the Gods came one day to its meeting ! They deigned to present him their messengers like a hero accompanied with their sphinges : Let them forgive him, if he dares to quote them in the enjoyement of his heart, even if he put no bad shame to ask them for grace. If he tries to make reappear by its legends, some bits of a lost knowledge, and really immortal and sacred, he owes it only with work of fort many archaeologists and historians. He makes no vanity of his work. If he had his whole life, believe not produce anything good and beautiful, he feels no less real joy and deep taste that he recognizes and admires beautiful and great at others, had they been Etruscan, Cretan, Assyrian or Sumerian ?
