In San Francesco Cremonese, the Lombard master offers us an intimate vision of meditative introspection that touches those levels of artistic lyricism that are difficult to approach. There is no desire to break the Caravaggesque tradition in this obsequious homage, but rather the modern continuity. In his work, Sodlab inserts the element of the cross inspired by that of the Church of Light by Tadao Ando, built in Osaka in 1989. Caravaggio's St. Francis becomes the artist's avatar equipped with the wings of thought, a characteristic common to the Lombard genius. The skull, a tribute to Orozco's creation, and the book are tools that do not represent mere quotation but which, albeit in the vortex of our contemporaneity, invite us to a more calm and firm reflection on our lives.
