The fragility and transience of existence are the themes that Gregorio Botta (Naples, 1953) addresses in the work presented in these pages, whose title is inspired by a verse by Emily Dickinson.
His art, synthetic and essential, draws on nature - using wax, water, alabaster, iron, leaves, fire, pigments - and gives voice to infinity, inviting the observer to a silent contemplation, to an intimate meditation on the cyclicity of time and the precariousness of the human being.

Contributions by Bruna Esposito, Massimo Mininni, Ludovico Pratesi and Andrea Viliani.
