Based on Ovid’s “Metamorphoses” DeCinti paints humans and gods fatefully being transformed into plants, animals or star signs. He stages these myths based on picturesquely embedded nude studies, setting free a drama that either pulsates or slowly unfolds. His pictorial language is powerfully direct, emotional and erotically charged. This parallel between myth and modernity is marked by an atmosphere of partly revealed suggestive echo landscapes or theatrically whipped up glimpses of nature.
