Silenzio d'Amuri

A haunting and dramatic painting,
with an underlying feeling of calm.


Click on arrow for the song, by Alfio Antico,
which inspired me to paint this portrait

Text in painting from an Italian Catalan Song:
Translated from Italian (Sicilian dialect) into French/ English:

"Je t'ai aimée dès le berceau
Je t'ai donné de la douceur miette après miette.
Silence d'amour qui coule dans les veines,
il n'est possible de te quitter."


I loved you from the cradle
I gave you the sweetness crumb after crumb
Silence of love that flows in the veins,
it is (not) possible to leave you.

Inspired by a powerful painting, which I ever saw @MoMa, NY city.
