Artworks Luciano Micallef
Journey is a short collection of writings and artworks, but one that explores a rich variety of themes. They include Malta’s ancient heritage and history, the vulgarity and profit-driven frenzy of modern commercial developments, the redemptive power of love between men and women, and the final mystry both of the human soul and of the cosmos.
What Victor’s poems and prose vignette articulate is complemented by Luciano’s erotic charge, and sense of mystery … It would be misleading to call the artworks ‘illustrations’ of what is written. This would suggest that the two can be considered in isolation, and would therefore ignore the intimacy – the ‘dialectic’ – between the images and the words.
