Ariel Soulé and Simon Toparovsky, a
painter and sculptor, respectively, move
together, build shared arts dreams, draw
shapes and colors and give the dimension
of time, past and present. They are never
resigned to a prophecy about the future.
Tavole, in the language of classicism,
signifies a life survey, human and artistic,
seen as columns in a layout. Tabulae, as I
see them, is the result, the mind, the chain,
the musical score, green cuttings in
nature, shots of pain and of small joy.
Tabulae is life translated into art according
to the culture of two itinerants traveling in
many parts of the world, from afar and
capable of building a synthesis between
diverse cultural junctures.
There is an air of the ancient and the
postmodern in the message of Ariel Soulé
and Simon Toparovsky. In this first
Tabula,,"The Fall of the Heroes" can be
seen all the lost dimensions of a mythical
translation of history, the sinews of power,
the allegation of unnecessary pride.
Soulé and Toparovsky are committed to
describing the inexorable end of
aspirations, the transience of vanitas, the
brittleness of the material. Nothing resists
the millstone of time, nothing should
escape. Soulé and Toparosvky proceed
courageously for "Tabulae" to flip through
and count the existential nature of humans
and inhumans ready to withstand and
ready to fall under the mallets of fate
potently returned to the pages of our day.
