E72 - EXHIBITION OF BALANCE IN CELTIC Etruria - 2007. / Painting Acrylic / 35,4 x 35,4 inches / 5100 USD

Description: ETRUSCAN / (Text translated by Google) / This table is typical of the Etruscan period waning, both the colors and patterns chosen, which still dominate the continent. The woman and the lyre are suspended in a clear sign! The dog could easily be part of any lot, even if only because of his treatise. The bird perched with a pronounced Irish medieval, can easily be linked with Celtic migrants. The horse and the attributes that are the wheel, and the dagger triscèle involve the classification Celtic chosen! Horse Celtic ubiquitous on Celtic coins, one, called back to the pot of gold and was originated in Normandy ( FRANCE) Wheel Celtic redundant in Celtic iconography for his religious role, while the circle is regarded as static, the spokes of the wheel, allowing it to turn, give a symbolic dynamics comparable to the cycle of Becoming. The god Taranis activated the wheel of the world which symbolizes the sun which revolves in the sky, providing life and eternal renewal. Triscèle: the triscèle or triskele is the tripartite division of a circle similar to the quadripartition the swastika with arms bent. The association in this symbol of the rotation and turning is a predominant effect of dynamic directional. The three human legs bent at the knee were mainly represented on coins of Pamphylia, a former southern region of Asia Minor, sometimes also in Greece and Sardinia. Dagger: very common if not inevitable among the Celts who used it mainly for hunting and carrying in their graves.

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 ?
