‘Beauty’ – A short film by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro

Una vez de vuelta de este corto período de trabajo y meditación en las montañas, retornamos el contacto con las máquinas a fin de promover el encuentro con cualquier manifestación de belleza y/o noción metafísica que se precie ser mentada y divulgada a los cuatro puntos cardinales y más allá de todo límite de aquéllos. Y en lo que a belleza pura y dura se refiere pocos ejemplos van a ser dignos de ser celebrados como el caso del trabajo de este sensacional artista italiano que en su día fue capaz de dotar de movimiento a algunas de las obras pictóricas más memorables de todos los tiempos, en su afamado y premiado cortometraje ‘Beauty’ (Belleza).

De manera pues que, del propio canal YouTube ‘autourdeminuit‘ dedicado a la exposición de esta joya de la animación y el arte digital, pasamos a insertar el metraje integro de dicho título: ‘BEAUTY’, by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro.

And make the earth devour her own sweet brood;
Pluck the keen teeth from the fierce tiger’s jaws,
And burn the long-lived phoenix in her blood;»

The Enigma of Beauty

«Devouring Time, blunt thou the lion’s paws,
And make the earth devour her own sweet brood;
Pluck the keen teeth from the fierce tiger’s jaws,
And burn the long-lived phoenix in her blood;»

-(W. Shakespeare, Sonnet no. 19)-

Over Beauty, there has always hung the cloud of destiny and all-devouring time.

Beauty has been invoked, re-figured and described since antiquity as a fleeting moment of happiness and the inexhaustible fullness of life, doomed from the start to a redemptive yet tragic end.

In this interpretation by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro, this beauty is brought back to the expressive force of gestures that he springs from the immobility of canvas, animating a sentiment lost to the fixedness masterpieces.

Its as though these images which the history of art has consigned to us as frozen movement can today come back to life thanks to the fire of digital invention.

A series of well selected images from the tradition of pictorial beauty are appropriated, (from the renaissance to the symbolism of the late 1800s, through Mannerism, Pastoralism, Romanticism and Neo-classicism) with the intention of retracing the sentiment beneath the veil of appearance.

An inspiration that returns to us the sense of one fallen, and the existential brevity that the author interprets as tragic dignity, with an unenchanted eye able to capture the profoundest sense of the image.

Beauty in this interpretation is the silent companion of Life , inexorably leading from the smile of the baby, through erotic ecstasies to the grimaces of pain that close a cycle destined to repeat ad infinitum.

They are, from the inception of a romantic sunrise in which big black birds fly to the final sunset beyond gothic ruins that complete the piece, a work of fleeting time.

[ Publicado el 22 ene. 2014

Abbiamo incontrato Rino Stefano Tagliafierro, regista e animatore di video sperimentali, che proprio in questi giorni spopola sul web con il suo lavoro più recente: ‘Beauty’, il video in cui 180 opere d’arte prendono vita e ci accompagnano in uno straordinario percorso multisensoriale. In ‘Beauty’ assistiamo ad una lievissima, ma sensazionale animazione di alcuni dipinti, che vanno dall’epoca del Rinascimento a quella del Simbolismo: un lavoro che in poco più di una settimana ha totalizzato oltre 1,5 milioni di visualizzazioni mettendo in luce l’originale talento di questo giovane videoartista. ]

    • Excuse me; in fact I am not very interested in having more visitors; it might be just the contrary. I feel pretty more free with not to much subscribers and followers. And, on the other hand, I feel a deep contempt for Facebook. Thanks, anyway.
