P.H. WERT (Peintre)
Editions Paris Octobre 2019,
Engines in Emilia are an integral part of the territory. Along the Via Emilia, everything began in the early twentieth century with the mechanization of agriculture, up until the cars that have made the history of motors. For those like P.H. Wert who were born in those places, gears are much more than a piece of their personal identity: they are an integral part of the landscape, and their cognitive DNA. They are a layer of the subconscious and as such, they end up re-emerging becoming a dreamlike topic. With his works, P.H. Wert re-elaborates the ancestral appeal of the mechanical province according to a sensitivity proper to the man of the third millennium. With the exhibited series The Mechanism of Circular Thought the artist traces abstract geometric structures with oil and acrylic on canvas. Engines are the research area for a perfect balance, but they are meant to achieve it only on the canvas, in that specific place and in that specific moment. Crystallized, that moment becomes lyric in a loop, in a series of works whose goal is just the endless search of a pure balanced symmetry. P.H. Wert’s works are the transfiguration of that circular thought born with Heraclitus, passing through Saint Augustine, Galileo and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Attained in Bologna, a province devoted to productivity, the circular thought translated itself into the machines and engines that made the history of humanity and of the territory that has populated it. Since the times of silk processing, till the creation of a manufacturing economy able to export this products all over the planet a worldwide famous Motor Valley was born in Emilia, thanks to those who had the courage to imagined it, starting from an agricultural context. Yet, the fictional mechanisms of P.H. Wert do not work, they are not intended to operate. They create a conceptual tension aimed at celebrating the "here and now", in order to reaffirm the supremacy of imagination and the perfection of balance over efficiency. The machine is at the same time free from fatigue, and trapped by imagination. In the end, with their geometric lines and invisible brushstrokes, this is what the works of P.H. Wert (a fictitious identity trapping the authentic one into the artist's imagination) seems to suggest us. As if the hand of the artist has been sublimated in his imagination. So pure and perfect and totally not afraid of looking mechanical. It is precisely in this context that his objective engineering precision becomes poetry. The perfect, yet ephemeral, gears represents our relationship with the others, both individual and collective. As if any human being was meant to be a circular mechanism created to be perfect, where each perforation correspond to an apparently exact fitting but, as a matter of facts, it rarely works. Furthermore, those gears spreading like circles, radiate to the relationship with others, becoming a powerful symbol of the increasingly worn out relation between human beings in contemporary society. Even when they are aesthetically perfect and in balance, as a matter of fact they hardly are. Through The Mechanism of Circular Thought P.H. Wert exposes his vision of an obsessively circular shape repeating itself in a constant, and at the same time different, way. The form of time, the supernatural intuitions, the dreams and nightmares are all circular. To stop time through timeless artworks.
