Lives and works in S. Benedetto del Tronto, Italy
Canvases are presented as photograms of rituals and gestures of a timeless spirit, and recount the genesis and history of ideas and objects that are able to survive the progression of eras, settling as current fragments of a not so distant past.
These objects are placed in an undefined painted space, where their function becomes ambiguous; they are traces of man's attempt to communicate with a reality that is superior to him, instruments of traditions, faith, and different cultures whose minimum common denominator is the capacity for synthesis, creations of a spiritual world that are the result of a collective unconscious.
The painted scenes are intimate and private moments that break apart at first glance: in the instant in which we try to recognise features and presence, they become empty, losing the specific nature of their narration, to then fill in and return with new signs, new tracks that become universal, abandoning the precise coordinates of time and space.
My interest in anthropological nature follows an omnivorous acquisition process of images, forms and figures, defined as a pathway of creation and the manipulation of symbols and images set to disappear, only leaving traces of itself behind.
