The book includes 365 drawings made by Andrea Fogli between 2000 and 2006. They are collected into a sort of intimate "diary", in which pages are metaphorically filled by the artist with his own particular "visions". Dreams, nightmares and unconscious images are mixed with everyday images that fuse to create delicate and shapeless figures – or, as the tile says, "shadows". It`s a living universe of animals, plant shapes, mythic and fantastical figures, humans, landscapes.
The subject of these drawings has never predetermined, but has appeared at the end of a long series of rubbing out and changes. The title-sentences, written under the just finished drawings, has no other meaning but the try to understand either who or what appeared there on the sheet, as if were suggestion of a dream, which wishes to tell us something.
The drawings are carried out each in a different day of the year and they are ordered according to the months. The time cycle evoked is a continuous interchange between the everyday time (clock time) – filled with personal events – and the cyclic time of nature, the universal time of history and the "metaphysical" time of art.
