Entrusting the account of one’s own life and business history to an artist could appear as an unconventional idea. We did it with Pedro Pedrazzini, a sculptor and artist of international fame, so that we could explain, much better than through words, what the State of the Art of Micronization is for us. Through the years we have made our company and our skills grow, the number of our customers increase, customers who trust and rely on us; we have widened the range of our services. Thus we have risen among the world leaders of the sector.
This picture and this painting represent a special place for us: we see, represented through a brush stroke, our efforts, a dedication which is, above all, a passion. A passion for our work, for the future and the beauty. The beauty of professional, well-made things.
The ascetic figure represented in the work by Pedro Pedrazzini is holding up with steady hands a scale which, in turn, supports in fine balance two white feathers. The scale, which is often represented as a symbol of justice, is here considered a top precision instrument, through which even the paltry weight of a feather can be evaluated. Adopting the «same standards» principle, the figure sets out for an exploration journey and, like a scale needle, will try to ponder over every new challenge brought about by this journey towards the unknown.
Through this work Pedro intends to symbolize and praise the work of research and discovery that science in general and Jetpharma in particular face on a daily basis.
Moreover, the painting’s background further marks the reality with which a man of science is confronted: the travelled distance is immersed into a celestial atmosphere symbolizing the visible, what science has measured and discovered through its tests. The area surrounding the blue light is shadowy, still unexplored, still to be walked through, a place which only with good skills and knowledge can be successfully faced.
