Artist Statement

My work is usually developed on a paper base, a choice which recalls the idea of writing through images that do not aim at solving didactic or didascalic functions but rather demonstrating a thesis in an inductive way (from the particular to the universal).


In the background there is the experience and recognition of a reality still dominated by the laws of Nature, which oppose the exasperated anthropocentrism of modernity, and prevarication of humanity over the animal and vegetal life which surrounds it. To this, I oppose a perspective which trascends the contingency of a panicked vision of the world and history, characterised by transformations induced by the animating energy within all things, and regulated by Nature's cyclic essence.


The irradiant and hypnotic subjects of the paintings are archetypical shapes that rise to symbols ascribable to a collective subconscious, working on the definition of a sort of cosmology which embodies the dialectic of opposites, their fatal coexistence, and reciprocal dependence, in the name of a deterministic monism which opposes dualist conflict.


Such conceptual dynamics find coherence in the processual aspects of technique; the use of oil paint prevails, carried out with the discipline of a miniaturist, spaced and cadenced by the obsessive repetiotion of pre-ordered modules. The paint seems to be the sourse of things, the ballance between organization and chaos. Thin and subtle pen lines suggest the fragility of life and the relationship between time in Nature and life time of a human being; like fragile timelines. The methodical attention to detail induces a perspective double reading of the paintings, microscopic and macroscopic, suggesting a parallel with biologic organisms from the particular to the universal.


In conclusion, my work is a formal synthesis that aims at an abstraction of reality which reveals deep and hidden aspects, invisible to the eye and irreducible to the shape and representation of real data.
