Lumina - Oil on Canvas on Wood

Filippo Sciascia

​Filippo Sciascia reflects and inquires into the phraseology of “Godspeed”, an expression commonly used to convey good wishes to someone embarking on a journey. As a non-native English speaker, Sciascia found this meaning to be peculiar, piquing his interest. Having always read it as two separate words “god speed”, he interpreted it as the idea of God speeding up nature through the process of evolution. This dichotomy is something that has consistently been explored in the artist’s work, with such interpretations already observable in his ongoing series, Lux Lumina. Extending from this series, Sciascia deconstructs pre-existing notions of the phrase “Godspeed” investigating this specifically through the evolutionary journey experienced by mankind. Whilst creating these works, Sciascia coincidently found himself in a self-reflexive position, retracing his own journey and personal evolution as an artist.
