About The Artwork

I've crafted a painting that emerged from the flow of consciousness. It portrays the skeleton of a pirate, characterized by a golden heart—deceased yet imbued with vitality, brimming with dreams and realities. The skeletal hands, constructed from bones, delicately grasp the threads of his life. This narrative unfolds within the context of an Italian existence metamorphosing into an American one, navigating the intricate tapestry of past, present, and future. The composition includes elements of grandeur, with references to palaces and castles, as well as the interplay of joys and sorrows, loves, and resentments. Amidst this visual journey, ancestral figures subtly make their presence felt. Positioned to the right of the canvas at its apex, a soldier dons a war hat reminiscent of a 16th-century knight, adding a historical layer to the narrative. The heartbeat of the pirate, depicted as lively and pulsating, persists throughout—an impactful metaphor manifested by a hole in the canvas. This aperture not only accentuates the painting's depth but also serves as the cradle for the heart, intricately supported by burlap material.

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.
