My abstract works, which began in 1992, after many moved on to painting the landscapes of my homeland "Abruzzo", are the need to express my emotions and research continues to communicate with the color instinctively.
Aboriginal is a series of paintings started in January this year where I try to convey the strength and the creative moment with primitive influences.Through the expression of signs and action painting I try to convey the energy of color and emotion of the moment
