Still life

They represent the stage where I play my experiences connected with people and thoughts. Objects represented such as: vases, bottles, cups, plats, baskets portray the inner potential with endless combinations leading to materialization of infinite existences, like musical notes make music.  

I use this Art language to work out my research and find myself. My paintings let me to see concretely what I am thinking of and where my thoughts want to go. I work with lively colours and loose brushwork for maintaining the dialogue with the language of the line. The introspective feature of my paintings complete the creative process. The idea comes up through my perception of what surrounds me. The approach is not instant, the shape takes time to build itself up and during this process it is enriched by thoughts and experiences beyond the artistic technique.

Mulberries

My series on trees reflects the landscape of my homeland, the Po Valley in Northern Italy.

 

On extremely foggy days, when the trees have lost their leaves, you cannot see their twisted figures which mystically stretch along the edges of the canals. They are images that have remained within me for a long time until I recognized their beauty & richness.

 

There are different types of trees that characterize the flora of the Po but what fascinates  me most are the Mulberries. These anthropomorphic beings which perpetuate themselves in their pilgrimage along the canals, are like tired giants. Sadly, it's a landscape that is in danger of extinction caused by man and it's never ending quest in the intensification of agricultural practices. With the erosion of the land, less and less of these beautiful trees remain.

 

My heart goes out to these creatures. It's thanks them and their natural beauty, than even on dark and cold days, we can appreciate them and take our gaze away from the dazzling lights of backlit screens.
