Stelian Pavalache – Satwa Guna
“SATWA GUNA or ILLUSION OF FORMS represents an ample photographic project that is based on photographic interpretation of the universal concept of diversity in unity.
Over time countless philosophers, anthropologists, writers, spiritual leaders, scholars and researchers from various fields have accredited the fascinating idea of the similarities found between peoples in many forms in which man is shown (faith,tradition, customs, spiritual activities etc.) managed to give birth to a fantastic inner soul searching those who want to materialize this through an art form.
This way, 10 years ago was born the first stage of the project : scientific documentation, anthropological documentation, depth study of comparative religions, historical documentation, geo political study and not at least scholastic study of spiritual practices, materializing finally in 2001 with the project start that departs from scientific and technical knowledge, sliding towards spiritual imaginative and metaphysics world of nature and human evolution through a sufficiently pure and spontaneous art form, photography. Promising to the future an unchanged visual reality and well documented.”
