Sculpture – Artist Addé – The Bleeding Stone
Sometimes, Nature enjoys tricking humans, having them face mysteries, enjoying whatever explanation they might find.
Red is the colour of blood but not only. Attached to red are many values and symbols all related to the strongest paradigm of life and death.
In many cultures, the unexplained presence of blood, or supposedly blood, is a strong signal of some sort of miracle.
Sometimes from wood, other times from stone, « blood » appears as a very strong significant evidence of a supranatural signal sent to humans.
Here, the bleeding stone sculpture has turned into an object of regards and worthip.
Metal, polychromy, are brought to inhance the mystery and holiness of the stone, augmenting its power and aknowledging the presence of surnatural forces.
The bleeding stone is a sculpture celebrating, since the earliest stage of humanity, the mysteries that brought us from fear to science.
A piece of contemporary art which links us, altogether, from our remote ancestors, to what, today, is our quest.
Not the holy grall, not the meaning of life, yet a questionning form less expected than the Spanish inquisition.
Nature remains full of mystery.
