I have always pictured my art as a challenge against the mean of expression itself, aimed at the metaphor.
Thus, in order to provide the image with a symbolic meaning, I think it’s important to be as flexible as possible when we experience the infinite possibilities of investigation that art has to offer.
This is the way my projects start, they are actual works in progress, stratified as the subway lines, traveling on tracks that may meet or violently collide. They are always the product of an urgency and of an inner frailty that isn’t afraid to show itself.
They can be unfinished or abandoned, or they can run simultaneously. Every project has its own medium that can change according to the metaphor I want to represent. Once the theme is decided by means of intuition or personal needs, or after reading newspapers or literary works, I let the idea that is already shaped in my mind live inside my memory. Then I keep on gathering information about the theme, I study it deeply and finally I decide which “matter-medium” to use to convey the meaning.
My works deal with a consistent number of themes: starting from the existential and political reflections about the human condition, passing through the poetical introspection inside the universe of emotions and feelings, they also express the suggestion of the game and of imagination, they may revisit popular traditions and convey the symbolic value of a landscape.
Therefore, I have a wide range of works, which is very diversified in terms of forms and strategies, even though they all reveal a common thread: Frailty, as the core of existence, and its different shades of meaning.
