VAPORS OF LIGHT
Light stimulates the perception of things. The reflex of electromagnetic radiation delves into our deduction of the world through a mechanism of filtration done on the chromatic light spectrum.
Reality, then, reveals upon our eyes and from these to the brain, distinguishing shapes and physical space.
In Art history, from Impressionism onwards, the theme of light is faced as a field of survey in order to explore what is invisible in objective reality: that is the principle of a research that makes visible the shape beyond the naturalistic glance, which does not describe but instead suggests.
