Atelier Asfodelo

Studio

The studio is located in the mountains between the Po Valley and the Ligurian Sea. It is managed by art world professionals who, whilst sensitive to therapeutic implications, do not consider therapy as a primary objective.

Statement

In Homer's The Odyssey, the asphodel meadows were for those in Hades who were neither good nor bad.  We decided to call our studio Atelier Asfodelo,  a patient, calm and precise environment and a welcome home away from the activity of the outside world.  The studio is a creative factory where we aim to stimulate our artists, providing them with references and materials to explore their own reality.

 

The work carried out in the studio is neither an alternative to treatment nor an instrument of psychological investigation. It is about self-expression and an appreciation of otherness.
