Aqua Aqua is the first person, the first artist on this earth, who dedicated his life, his whole artistic life exclusively to the primordial and life element water. Never before in art had water itself become "the nucleus of representation".Arturo Bovi, Assisi 1975
In the future, the words water and aqua aqua will be inextricably linked for people.Michel Leiris, Paris 1981
Aquatism is the visualization of water in painting, in art. In aquatism, the "world of water" is made "visible" in its lawfulness, essentiality and complexity. Water is an optical body formed by numerous water phenomena.
The optical phenomena in water are basically the same, whether they take place in a river, a lake, in the sea or just in a puddle of water. The optical decomposition, as well as the complete new formation of a form in water, regardless of whether it is mineral, vegetable, animal or human, is a dominant water phenomenon.
A true fascination in the wet element is the optical stripping of forms and their migration to other depths that are farther away or closer to our eyes.
The whole water world, Wherever and however it appears, is included in aquatism.
