Looking for

Initiator on the journey of transforming darkness, fear and uncertainty into light of understanding.Wolfgang Goethe’s familiar words “ Where there is light, there is also shadow” comes to mind when looking at the art of Ade Quercianera.He dares to look at the dark sides of life.He does not rise to the position of a declarer or a judge.He only suggests,leaves a lot in the vague. In order to understand what he sees,the viewer opens to the presence of the dark, perhaps even threatening, in Quercianera‘s work. By confronting the dark aspects, not suppressing them or denying them, there is clarity, light, understanding and deep compassion. Getting involved in Quercianera‘s work has the quality of an initiation. Perhaps that explains how it is possible that behind the not easily accessible, rather gloomy work there is such an open,radiant,life-affirming artist personality
