Your work has gone into poetical territory. It has quintessenced itself. The shapes that you create hate the thoughtless normality. They express a state of superior awareness. Your vases reveal a desire to fly, travel in supreme dimensions of the entity. Your enamelled works are tokens of magic typical to crystal, minerals and rocks. Your pottery is demiurgic. You have come to a sublime level. If the sublime is to remove veils which are more and more subtle, you have gone into the hidden sphere of the object showing the spirituality of the material, also the spatiality of the substance. Your vases are poetized birds, crying out for a superior thirst and a reconquest of both cosmic and human reality, the opposite to a world which you abominate: the vile deeds and the self-interested materialities and aggressions which hurt your noble creative soul. Continuously working but misunderstood, apart from a few people who have been able to penetrate into your works of art and reflect on them. You have carried on your back years of struggle and devotion to the fire which consumes our eternity. But with nobleness, always resolutely, saying yes to the internal and external struggle. A struggle against the bad faith of systemic boors and against the self-interested attitude of those who cannot see anything in art. For them art is another step to tread on and to continue. You have quintessenced yourself. You have obtained your revelation. The enamels of your murals are colourful, transparent and bright interpretations, subtile representations of your deep vibrations. Joan Panisello: I admire your work. I thank life for having met you. Your demiurgie is this: an elevated and noble reconciliation and an abhorrence of all the bad and hostile things that hurt your tender heart, while deep down lacking reception and affectivity which you so much look for unconsciously, although it may seem the opposite because of your 'man-artist' frame of mind. If the 'shaman' of an indigenous tribe was at the same time an artist, a seer, a creator and demiurge, you my friend Joan, have embedded yourself into the sacret orbit of the artistic 'shamanism', perhaps without knowing it; perhaps having a foreboding of it. Your worship of the asymmetrical the unexpected and untested can be understood and picked up only by another 'shaman'.
