Ade and Persefone by scifo Ade and Persefone by scifo
olio su tela 210x150 cm
2010
Homage to Roberto Ferri italian Painter

Così, bella Persefone vissuto una vita tranquilla fino a quando Ade, il Signore degli Inferi, si innamorò di lei. Si dice che Zeus gli consigliò di portarla via, come sua madre Demetra non era tale da consentire. Stava innocentemente raccogliendo fiori con qualche ninfe-Athena, Artemide e, l'inno omerico dice-o Leucippe, o Oceanids in un campo quando Ade è venuto a rapirla, rottura attraverso una fessura nella terra. Il luogo dove Persefone è stato detto di essere stato portato via è diverso nelle varie tradizioni locali. I siciliani credevano che Ade ha trovata nei prati vicino Enna. I Eleusini parlano del piano Nysaean in Beozia e ha detto che Persefone era sceso con Ade nel mondo inferiore all'ingresso del Oceanus occidentale. Conti successivi posto lo stupro vicino Attica o Erineus vicino Eleusi. I cretesi pensavano che la loro isola è stata la scena dello stupro. [16] Demetra cercato disperatamente con le fiaccole per la figlia persa in tutto il mondo. In alcune versioni si vieta la terra per produrre, o trascura la terra e la profondità della sua disperazione si fa nulla per crescere. Helios, il sole, che vede tutto, alla fine ha detto Demeter quello che era successo e alla fine ha scoperto il luogo della sua dimora. Infine, Zeus, pressato dalle grida delle persone affamate e dalle altre divinità che ha anche ascoltato la loro angoscia, costretto Ade per tornare Persefone. Tuttavia, è stato un dominio delle Parche che chi consuma cibo o bevande in Underworld era destinato a passare l'eternità lì. Prima di Persefone è stato rilasciato a Hermes, che era stato inviato a recuperare il suo, Ade suo indotto a mangiare i semi di melograno, (quattro o sei secondo il racconto), che l'hanno costretta a tornare nel mondo sotterraneo per un periodo di ogni anno. I semi corrispondono ai mesi estivi, in Grecia, di solito un terzo dell'anno (quattro mesi) quando Persefone (Kore) è assente. In alcune versioni, Ascalaphus informato le altre divinità che Persefone aveva mangiato i semi di melograno. Quando Demetra e sua figlia sono stati riuniti, la Terra fiorì con la vegetazione e il colore, ma per alcuni mesi all'anno, quando Persefone tornò agli inferi, la terra ancora una volta è diventato un regno sterile. Questa è una storia di origine per spiegare le stagioni.

Only two comments and no critiques? Tsk. Such a sad day when good art goes unnoticed. I say we fix that.

Now, one of my biggest problems in critiquing this piece is I like to start off with the positives. Seeing as this better than most of what I tend to critique (I usually like to help people who are starting off) the list of positives on what I like will be pretty long, so I'll condense it. I really like the techniques done into creating it. From a distance when I look at it the bold strokes of the brush aren't noticeable and work well into giving the figures form and weight, and the closer I get the more I can see the individual brush strokes that went into creating it, and I really like that in a painting.

Now, critique wise some things just seem a little odd, or out of place. Namely the first thing I noticed was in the bit on the left side with Zeus (I'm assuming that's Zeus?). I can't tell if he's sitting in a seat or something or if that's his robe that falls down in almost a straight line down to the bottom of the image. It seems a little too straight and it kind of bisects the image a bit. Another thing that really is more of a personal critique is the background itself. While it kind of gives the impression that Persefone is in Hades with it's warm reds, the angle of what looks like stonework diverge a bit from behind the figure, making it look like he's sitting in a corner or something. I don't know if that was your intent, but it's just a little distracting for me is all =P.

All in all, good work =) You should be proud of this one.

This is so beautiful and I love the fact that the picture is enigmatic--open to interpretation.  Just sublime.

Hm... After going through your gallery I just have to ask- why do you tend to make your paintings look distorted/messy. I don't see details of faces etc. What inspired you for this, I haven't seen it before with Renaissance-style modern artists :o

it's a great painting, the only problem I have with it is that I can't tell what's going on. Is he saying goodbye to her? or the abduction itself?
