“The World of Enrico Garff” an interview with deep insights on the Maestro’s life, philosophy and art

“Surely I yearned to be remembered for having delivered during my existence something of substantial value to humanity. In the late 80s, I started a classical Greek-inspired cycle, portraying scenarios with sculptures in a wide range of styles, including Classical, Hellenistic, Minoic and Cycladic art. The inspiration gained from the full immersion in those historical eras was overwhelmingly corroborating: the statues appeared to take life under my brush while the mystical atmosphere of those eras captured my soul in rapture. I never lacked the inspiration, to be honest, but during that period the creative flow was so powerful that I perceived it as an uncontrolled flow of energy streaming down to the painting. In conjunction with that blessed inspirational connection, I was practising a spiritual discipline regarding the “liberation of the thought”. “

Vibrating Colors and Sounds merged in a mesmerizing Slideshow

Lassi Nummi is one of the most beloved Finnish poets of his day. My watercolours inspired him to these wonderful lines:

“The first thing that strikes one in Garff’s painting is that his images appeal directly to the senses; looking at his landscapes, a perception of moisture in the air can almost be felt on the skin. Garff prefers an intensive perspective based on colour to a traditional geometrical structure. Light and Space are created by chromatic contrasts. One can sense a tension vibrating between Nature and the human figure which I dare to call ”mythical”. The strong contrast between pale luminosity and heavy dark surfaces seems to spring from an unseen dimension of myth and human destiny. The contrasts created among the elements, air, water and earth excite the imagination and stimulate the interest of the observer. In the foreground Joy and Harmony predominate, but in the background gather the shadows of a tragic destiny. In some paintings the figures seem to belong simultaneously to two different worlds, to this familiar physical one, and to an upper ethereal air. In an inexplicable way, the spiritual dimension of this painter’s Art is constantly born from the very touch of his brush. Some of his works evoke an atmosphere which recalls Blake, others bring to mind Dante.”

1981 Enrico Garff was back in Italy, this time in Sicily where contacts seemed more promising. Quite soon he exhibited a series of new paintings in collaboration with Jano Barbagallo and Gianni Pennisi in the Galleria La Spirale in Acireale, and he was introduced to the much beloved Sicilian poet Renzino Barbera [1] who wrote the introduction for Enrico’s exhibition in the Palazzo Corvaja in Taormina in May and June 1981.[8]
