»The Well«

Liquid Image »The Well« by Peter, with a soundtrack by Dietmar.

In spring 2015 Vazo and Peter met in Portugal. On a visit to Sintra, an ancient village pretty close to Lisboa they started their project »The Well«, which is located in the site of the »Quinta da Regaleira«.

The 27 metre deep well, resembles an inverted tower, and depending on the direction you choose, either a journey down into the depths of the earth, or a climb out of the darkness into the light, the journey through the earth is like a rebirth through mother natures womb, from where all things come and where one day all shall return.

The well is divided in nine platforms reminiscent of the Divine Comedy by Dante and the nine circles of Hell, the nine sections of Purgatory and the nine skies which constitute Paradise. At the base of the well you will find a Rosicrucian Cross, which also happened to be the coat of arms of Carvalho Monteiro.

The trio27 showed their works a on November 27th 2015 in the gallery Lange in Siegburg, Germany, curated by Christel Schüppenhauer from Schüppenhauer Art + Projects.

Vazo

Vazo started a series of sketches of the well with the idea to trnsfer them to another series of large scale drawings or paintings. He proposed to do an exhibition with these big sheets hanging in the room, maybe togesther with prints of Peter’s Photographs.

Peter

Peter made the way up and down the stairway several times to the photographs he had in mind. He took them home and created the ligquid image »The Well«, which you can view below. Dietmar contributed the soundtrack to this video.

From this liquid image Peter extracted a series of stills, printed as diasecs in the format of 65 × 36 cm. Three of them you can also see further down the page.
