History of the Self Portrait and the Selfie


As Prometheus steals gods’ fire to give it to men, Piero snatches a divine look and embodies it on the faces of  his figures, angels and warriors, saints and flagellators. Porcelain eyes spread a fixity that pervades every element: all bodies lose weight and temperature; cronos stops his motion and kairos appeases any fervour. There is a light of a god nearby, untouchable but palpable. Piero’s eyes have seen too many things. He will die blind.
