Mi abbandono (Cloe)


One day Cloe (the little one of the house) told me: “You know mum, dads are important….

With my dad I feel more serene and I feel I can do better at school too”

Thus this painting was born. Cloe abandons herself on her dad’s shoulder

And I’ve been thinking about how important the father figure is. I really didn’t have a dad.

The dad represents the male vision of the world: protection, solutions, practical sense, physical strength

This is reflected in the values that are transmitted by him in the family, in the ways of behaving and relating to the female figure

Their support is essential for a just society. In sharing roles, respecting women inside and outside the walls.
