Quotes about Salvatore GarauEdit

  • What is the problem? If someone goes to bed with your wife you get angry, but if you go to bed and you agree, the question is resolved. [...] If the works have been made available by the authors themselves. It's all linear. If anything, it will be a question of understanding what the product of this union is.

The movement of the stripes of color - pulsating, restless, unpredictable, paths of unstoppable energies and tensions - suggest wind and flames, bodies that contort and interpenetrate, full of power and sensual force [...] seductive and disturbing are not however dedicated only to Richard Wagner [...] features that are not secondary to understand his poetics, in which an obsessive monochromatism, made up of shades of red, seems to evoke the spirit of the mythical struggles of the heroes of Wagner.
