Ernesto Corazza was born in 1956 in Padova, Italy, where he still lives.
Since he was a child he dedicated himself to drawing figurative expressions, working with colors and sculpting.
He has followed drawing and painting courses with the masters Mariano Missaglia, Youliana Manoleva and Stefano Signorin.
He graduated in architecture from the University Institute of Venice.
Towards the end of the 70's he started a personal spiritual research. In particular he felt inspired by the ideas of the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner on art and art history.
Steiner sees in the historical evolution of artistic expressions a reflection of the spiritual impulses that act on human consciousness; this perspective can be useful to understand also the forms of contemporary art, from the avant-garde of the twentieth century to today, in the context of the general evolution of culture and its current conditions.
About the Linee Collection
When this collection was created the artist started with a smaller canvas and a different concept from the rest of the collection giving the title; "Linea0". It followed by naturally suggesting to him the vision of an ancient portal that is opening onto a space of light beyond it.
The representation of the threshold par excellence, the one between the earthly world and the spiritual one, it's very present in the history of art; the English poet William Blake, taken later, among others, by Aldous Huxley and Jim Morrison, speaks of the "doors of perception".
The artist: "It seems to me, for example, that the cracked and shattered surfaces of Cubist paintings or Mark Rothko's canvases express the same perceptual and representational process.
After painting the first paintings in the series, I realized that I was using for each one of them one of the seven fundamental colors of the visible spectrum, between red and violet."
In the Eastern spiritual tradition these colors are associated with the main energy centers, the chakras. From a Western perspective, the psychiatrist Roberto Assagioli, the founder of Psychosynthesis, identifies seven fundamental functions in the psychic field: sensations, impulses-desires, emotions-feelings, will, imagination, thought and intuition.
In painting the Lines, the artist has tried to harmonize and invoke the psychic functions in relation to their respective colors with the search for an expressive autonomy of the composition.
