Andrea Romanello's Art: The Voice of Mother Earth
During the first few years, after having finished the Art Academy, the works by Andrea Romanello reflected on the relationship between democracy and the information media.
Through artistic research he wanted to understand up to what degree the Italian political structure was really democratic and at the same time to what extent the mass media was objective, especially in its rapport with the political apparatus.
The artist tried to observe reality with a objective eye, free from prejudice, to make himself and people reflect through the sincerity of painting.
All this was done with the intention of giving his best contribution to a more attentive and well-informed community. After a series of social and personal events, he became aware of how art was too weak an element to move consciences quickly and how it could only act over a long period of time through concentrated and sedimented images.
Following a wider and more intimate reflection, he further realized he had not only missed the central and fundamental point of Man's suffering but also the essence of his own art and of life.
He therefore decided to question his way of living and working .
He stopped for a while to reflect on himself, society, Nature, and the language of painting in depth. He started travelling, first of all in Italy and then abroad, choosing Berlin as the ideal place to settle in order to understand and compare the world's various cultures. In Berlin, Andrea gave himself the time and space to become aware of who he was and what he really wanted.
After years of research, during which time he essentially threw out all his artwork, he arrived at a renaissance.
The social, temporal and sectorial themes, took on wider, existential and spiritual implications.
His drawings and paintings became more and more expressions of the innate roots of the artist, descending from the direct link with Nature and not produced by merely intellectual dynamics.
He allowed the eternal to work through his hands.
His works of art became the element which crystallized and synthesized physical emotions, the awareness of the soul and cosmic intuition.
Andrea Romanello's artwork hence becomes inspired by All and the Voice of Mother Earth!
Man is united to the other living beings sentient or not: he is the element which is part of, and is not the dominant in Nature!
The environment and its safeguard are only the preservation of humanity itself. To assault and wound the planet and its components is tantamount to annihilating mankind!
Human Beings are obliged to take another step forward if they do not want to self-destruct; through his works the artist now encourages every single person, from all walks of life, to "wake up" and defend the environmental and civic equilibrium of the World. Becoming aware of each attentive daily gesture towards the Earth and its well-being, even the smallest, is a powerful, much needed act to change direction.
Each individual can make a difference!
Andrea Romanello's art, together with his lifestyle, offer an important contribution inciting a greater and more urgent awareness of all the above.
Will you teach your children what we have taught our children? That the earth is our Mother? What befalls the earth befalls all the sons of the earth. This we know: The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand of it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
