About The Artwork

Homage to Michelangelo, inspired by Michelangelo #02 - Italian Renaissance drawings in pencil, graphite, sanguine, charcoal, pastels, tempera on paper. This serie of works is inspired by the old masters of the Italian Renaissance: Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Paolo Uccello, Pollaiolo, Botticelli ... and to all Italian Renaissance. The Italian Renaissance in painting began anew, in Florence and Tuscany, with the frescoes of Masaccio, then the panel paintings and frescos of Piero della Francesca and Paolo Uccello which began to enhance the realism of their work by using new techniques in perspective, thus representing three dimensions in two-dimensional art more authentically. Piero della Francesca wrote treatises on scientific perspective. The creation of credible space allowed artists to also focus on the accurate representation of the human body and on naturalistic landscapes. Masaccio's figures have a plasticity unknown up to that point in time. Compared to the flatness of Gothic painting, his pictures were revolutionary. Around 1459 San Zeno Altarpiece (Mantegna), it was probably the first good example of Renaissance painting in Northern Italy a model for all Verona's painters, for example Girolamo dai Libri. At the turn of the 16th century, especially in Northern Italy, artists also began to use new techniques in the manipulation of light and darkness, such as the tone contrast evident in many of Titian's portraits and the development of sfumato and chiaroscuro by Leonardo da Vinci and Giorgione. The period also saw the first secular (non-religious) themes. The period known as the High Renaissance represents the culmination of the goals of the earlier period, namely the accurate representation of figures in space rendered with credible motion and in an appropriately decorous style. The most famous painters from this phase are Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, and Michelangelo. Their images are among the most widely known works of art in the world. Leonardo's Last Supper, Raphael's The School of Athens and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel Ceiling are the masterpieces of the period. High Renaissance painting evolved into Mannerism, especially in Florence. Mannerist artists, who consciously rebelled against the principles of High Renaissance, tend to represent elongated figures in illogical spaces. Modern scholarship has recognized the capacity of Mannerist art to convey strong (often religious) emotion where the High Renaissance failed to do so. Some of the main artists of this period are Pontormo, Bronzino, Rosso Fiorentino, Parmigianino and Raphael's pupil Giulio Romano.

A hard personal experience superimposed on the covid period, which changed my life forever, gave me reason to appreciate even more the strength of color, line and expression. "The Whole goes beyond Form". I enjoy expressing myself with different techniques: painting, drawing, photography. I can imagine that initially the collector or the beholder of my works can be a little crowded out or confused. The hallmark of my work is not found in the repetition of the same technique, again and again, but in some features of the technique itself and. The sign, the theme, the subject... are the way you can recognize my "signature." Living in Italy, every day I live together archeology, painting, architecture and Roman statuary, the Renaissance, the Baroque and all the other great styles, artistic periods and collections that are here, in Rome and in Italy. This is in my history, in my roots. In the history and roots of Western art. I have always felt a fascination for drawing since I was a child. I was fascinated by the idea of translating fantasy stories or even the first knowledge I got in school in images. I remember my notebooks: they were full of stories with drawings and illustrations of what I was learning at school. This is the way I learned new techniques and I improved my abilities: pencil, charcoal, pen, oil-colours, acrylics, using different styles and painting supports. I have painted soft and wavy landscapes, which sometimes are rough and separated by plains. I saw these landscapes in Rome as I was a child and they come to my mind in my every day life. This is the Nature where History traces overlap and they get, in turn, enveloped by Nature. There is a continuous and silent conflict between these two elements. These conflict, together with Rome and its history, its streets, its ruins and of course its colours is the leit motiv of my work. These themes are here, at your fingertips. It's present history. I cannot describe with words what exactly I feel when I'm surrounded by these "strong" landscapes and I try to paint them. I have completed my knowledge on image studying and acquiring certificates on web design and commercial art and working as a graphic designer. At the moment I work in the Public Italian School as an Art Teacher. I took part in many collective exhibits. My works are in private collections in Italy, Europe, Japan, USA, China, Australia.
