  :: :: The Aglou saga ::  

AGLOU (Sidi Moussa, province of Tiznit - south Morocco).
The first painting has been realized in Aglou in 1978,
originally an automatic drawing (filling of space).

The three other paintings were designed as a direct extension of the first,
free from any influences of the intermediaries versions.

One can note, by observing the four paintings, the progression from original
chaos towards a perfect balance, result of introspective auto-analyze feverish and exhausting,
which, although having wasted eight years of possible unconcern, were
extremely enlightening.

These images are mirrors: though having been conceived through personal theoretical search,
every body remains free to find his own interest there and make his own interpretation of it.

Last version of the picture, conceived and realized in 1985/86 (triptych 260 X 130 cm), which expresses the accession to a certain balance, the agreement of harmony and disorder.

Primarily inspired by studies in the field of Speculative Alchemy, the painting is built on the opposition Blue/Red which are allotted to Dali-El Salvador (the saver) and to Christ, other saver, who appears with thirteen recoveries in the form of variations around the image of the Shroud of Turin.

Ric appears himself Ten times, committed in various tasks: because the subject of this image is indeed the share of alchemical Work that the researcher must carry out in himself and in the world in order to achieve a harmonization of his contradictory Tendencies.

The image of Christ adopts, in her various forms located on the chessboard, the scenes featuring the four Cardinal Virtues (Force, Temperance, Justice and Prudence: in blue), and Seven Sins, in red in bottom of the left panel.

Ric himself sees his face confused with that of Malignant in the centre of this same panel, represented by the mask of Satan already present on the chessboard of Third Aglou and in the arcane of the Devil in the tarot.
