About The Artwork

At the heart of the composition stands the artist, a solitary figure enveloped in the embrace of solitude and longing. With a solitary tear tracing its path down his cheek, he stands as a poignant testament to the ache of separation, his gaze lost in the ethereal realm where memories intertwine with dreams. Each brushstroke is a whisper, a silent plea for the return of companionship, as he immerses himself in the act of creation, seeking solace in the tangible expression of his emotions. As the tendrils of smoke curl upwards, they serve as ethereal conduits, weaving a delicate tapestry of remembrance and nostalgia. Within the hazy veil of his thoughts, the visage of one friend emerges, a spectral presence haunting the recesses of his mind. Their absence is palpable, yet their essence permeates every inch of the canvas, a testament to the enduring power of camaraderie. In the background, a second figure stands in silent vigil, his gaze fixed upon the horizon where memories linger like wisps of smoke on a breeze. His countenance bears the weight of countless shared moments, etched into the lines of his weathered visage. Though physically distant, his spirit remains tethered to his companions, a silent sentinel keeping watch over the sanctity of their bond. Amidst the layers of burlap and weathered canvas, the tactile nature of the artwork beckons to be explored, each texture a testament to the complexity of human connection. The rough-hewn fabric speaks of resilience, while the jagged edges of discarded cardboard hint at the fragmented nature of memory. Through touch, the viewer is invited to trace the contours of emotion, to feel the palpable weight of longing and affection that permeates every fiber of the piece.

In the bustling heart of New York City, I find solace in the tactile world of abstraction, where emotion and space intertwine through a dance of texture, plaster, clay, and mixed media. My artistic journey is an exploration of the unspoken, a visual narrative that emerges from continuous experimentation and a deep connection to my Italian heritage. Rooted in the rich tradition of Italian pottery and maiolica from the 15th century, my work pays homage to the craftsmanship of yesteryears while pushing the boundaries of contemporary expression. I draw inspiration from the intricate details and vibrant colors of maiolica, infusing my creations with a sense of history that resonates in the present. Each piece is a symphony of textures, a testament to the physicality of my process. The interplay of plaster and clay, coupled with the dynamic energy of mixed media, creates a sensory experience that invites viewers to immerse themselves in the layers of my artistic journey. The canvas becomes a playground where emotions materialize in sculptural forms, leaving room for interpretation and personal connection. My artistic philosophy is one of constant exploration, a commitment to pushing the limits of traditional mediums. The city that never sleeps serves as both muse and backdrop, infusing my work with the rhythm and energy of urban life. New York City becomes a canvas, a dynamic space where emotions are amplified and reflected in the ever-evolving tapestry of textures and colors. Through my abstract expressions, I invite the audience to embark on a visual and emotional odyssey, transcending the confines of the canvas. In each stroke and sculpted form, I seek to capture the essence of human experience, transforming raw materials into a language that speaks directly to the soul.
