Statement

 

In my work I prefer using oil painting even if I like to express myself even through other languages such as drawing, watercolour, printmaking and photography. Each one of these techniques possesses its own expressive characteristic, but I am drawn to live them under the pictorial point of view.

Nature is first of all my source of inspiration, even if I am not interested in a faithful reproduction. Mine is rather a poetical-evocative vision which aims to make perceptible the spiritual dimension of Nature itself, beyond mere appearance. Nature is for me a dynamic reality, run by a vital energy I perceive it in the form of a dance and a song that remains perceivable even when these forces take a precise form.
According to this particular way of perceiving what is around me, I made some precise formal choices. I refuse every form of detailed description as describing means in some way to define and therefore make a reductive choice that make the true essence really accessible, as it can only be perceived or felt as it resides beyond what is definable. Mine are open artworks, born by my emotions that live of the sensations they rise in their observer.
The colour needs to evade precise limits by means of glazes or gestures intended to disengage the creative energies entangled inside the elements of the landscape. The sign when present is a sort of countermelody intended to suggest fragments of awareness about an ancient knowledge that dwells in nature and invites the man of our time to establish with it an harmonious relationship.

The works of these last years are realized by means of a personal technique which is still evolving and has bitumen as fundamental material. Bitumen has a long history in painting but it is usually used with chalk that extinguishes the light and the subtle variations it can produce.
Bitumen has for me a poetic value connected to its ancient origin. So it becomes the symbol of primeval matter speaking of a time before the time before the beginning of the history, before creation. Therefore it is more than natural to use it in conjunction with gold, that represents the light of life that finds its way through the shapeless c
