The baroque vision of David Lachapelle gives me the impression of a déjà-vu.
I’ve been there, I’ve done that…
It’s like feeling and reviewing sensations that are very known by me and my body, leading me to a known, but always mysterious world of life and death, ¨heaven to hell¨.
Suddenly I also felt ¨the intervention¨, as if the Christ would be there by my side, leading me all the way and making me understand the sense and the connection of it all!
Maybe Lachapelle is the one, the illuminated one, the chosen one… the one making me understand the complexity, simplicity and the ¨insufficiency of all the things attainable¨ to concentrate on me as a human being and part of this big and unfinished ¨deluge¨.
