“Eros and Psyche” is a collage artwork by Walter Capezzali.

As other of his works, it deals with Greek mithology. The “crime” happened. Psyche, flooded by her wish, lit the lamp and dared to look the splendid naked body of her secret lover. So,  the only taboo she had to keep is broken! And now the splendid palace, a life full of unspeakable pleasures and the very comfortable, nice, canopy bed will disappear! Eros is ready to fly away. The interpretation of the artist: Walter Capezzali deals with on one of the elements that characterize the intimacy between two people: mystery, the pleasure of discovery in the world of Eros. Here mystery plays a fundamental role. The protagonist could not see the lover, but only feeling his o her smell. So, being able to touch it in his or her forms, is both pleasure and suffering. Giving yourself to the unseen is an act of deep trust. The confidence will disappear, when the eyes regain control of the feelings. Here is the crime. This is what the mind, the Psyche, has built thanks to the other senses only to gratify the brain, without prejudice. There is also another message that we could perceive in reading the work: love is real without influence from the elements that are extraneous to the couple’s relationship. Loving following feelings and not reason. Because reason, with its conditionings, often manages to destroy unrepeatable moments. Loving without Psyche and Eros creating a conflict in feelings.
