Historical Context:
In "The River Ocean", Luigi Marzo echoes melodic and rhythmic sensations of a river and creates many other new and exuberant ones. The result is both a pictorial and musical work, which evokes the great mythological Greek River Ocean. This artwork serves as a sign and color sequence to an aesthetic symbol of continuous transformation, like the "panta rei" (everything flows) of the Heraclitus River which, with unrestrainable cadence, produces new combinations of images and ways of being. ;In "The River Ocean", Luigi Marzo echoes melodic and rhythmic sensations of a river and creates many other new and exuberant ones.
