In "Al Crepuscolo, la Calma" (At Dusk) Fabio Costantino Macis expresses clearly his love for the ancient painting and textures created by light.
The light glimmers as filtered by a fabric, reveal characters wrapped in a dense shadow, soft and almost palpable. There is a strong aesthetic taste that oversees the composition comprising the natural elements of earth, air, water, and then the man, caught in a conscious and absorbed languor. A calm not without tension, however, that it's possible to find in the gesture and expression.This concept conceived with great balance reminds the reflexive and ecstatic pre-Raphaelite painting, especially the figures of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. The citation element is in fact never cried, and the work lends itself to an interpretation on several levels, gaining further value and strength from her own ability to evoke a vigil silence.
