“This project draws its origin from the publication of the first Italian version of “Plant of Gods” by Albert Hofmann and Richard Evans Schultes, edited by Venexia Editrice. This book, first published in 1979, traces the tradition of psychoactive herbs, investigating their significance in shaping culture and history.
After the experience in the Amazon rainforest, the artist pays homage, through these series of unique edition screenprint-monotypes, to the shamanic practice and the natural soul of central Peru.
The artist gets his inspiration from the traditional Peruvian culture and makes it part of his artistic path: in a single gesture, the colors are impressed on the paper and are mixed together, calling to mind the colors of water, earth, and sky of Peru that blend on the peaks of the Rainbow Mountains and among the waters of the Rio Ucayali.
The relationship between static and dynamic space, a key element in 2501’s research, here takes on new contours and evolves once again, loading itself with meanings and suggestions that move sinuously on the paper and tell us of distant places and traditions.”
