My work is on permanent display at the Galleria Faber in Rome and I participate regularly in exhibitions at the RvB Arts Gallery in Rome, Vernice Art in Bari and Artistica inc in Forlì.
My work combines the disciplines of painting, sculpture and installation and is centred on the theme of nature, where my aim is to speak of an ephemeral and harmonious world, turning the anthropocentric principles of modern life on their head. I see my work as a meditation on the controversial relationship between man and nature, in an attempt to highlight the precariousness of such an equilibrium and the necessity of reconquering nature’s purity and primacy. The beauty and poetry of such qualities coexist with a sense of perennial fragility and precariousness, a metaphor of the fleeting nature of human existence. My works are intended to be seen as bodies subject to the passage of time, which renders all things transitory, and is reinforced through the use of impermanent materials.
The ‘inside Plexiglass’ series involves the creation of microcosms that appear to protect and suspend all they contain, and introduces concepts of stratification while contemplating a process of densification/diminution that aims to achieve an essential form of representation inspired by the natural world, and an interweaving action where nature gradually gains predominance over all man-made constructions.
In the ‘Art Book’ series I have emphasised the temporal aspect of reading as an experience, with its three fundamental phases: firstly ignorance of the object’s contents, which endows it with a mysterious quality, then the phase of absorption, and finally the conclusion of the process with the internalisation of its meaning. In some cases the Art Books also become symbolic containers of thoughts, in others they are an abstract narrative of nature formed through the use of materials offered by nature itself…
Technically, my work can be described as minimalist, with the balanced application of a limited number of sculptural and pictorial elements. The principle materials that I use are paper, wax, and natural elements.
