What would happen if Romeo and Juliet had not died?
What would have happened if Romeo and Juliet had not died in the tragic story of their love? This New Collection aims to introduce a new narrative with an imagined scenario.
Alex's new collection: Romeo and Juliet
In this fresh perspective, the focus isn’t on the love between these doomed lovers, but rather a reflection on the personal transformations each one of us undergoes in order to sustain a relationship.
The initial phase of the story primarily serves as a comparative representation of the psychological states of the two young protagonists.
Similar to the portrait of Juliet we have the portrait of Romeo. Rich, handsome, and yet melancholic like Juliet.
Juliet's family situation
Being Pulled Apart
In a profound state of distress, Juliet appears shattered. The painting depicts her as if she’s tearing pieces from herself, to the point of seeming on the verge of disintegration.
The definition of love
The Balcony Scene
This painting is the centerpiece, depicting the iconic balcony scene between Romeo and Juliet. This is probably the most significant piece in the collection, as it illuminates the fundamental dynamic upon which their relationship is based.
The healing process
Light and Shadows
The collection culminates in a theatrical and symbolic gesture: the elimination of one’s negative self, a necessary sacrifice to stay beside the loved one.
The couple can have a future
Life after life
The final piece represents a conclusion that heralds a future.
This painting underscores the importance of resilience and dedication needed to overcome challenges and achieve a genuine happy ending.
