About The Artwork

In the enigmatic realm of my "Atlantis", a crimson orb reigns at the center of the scene, its symbolism weaving a tale untold. From its epicenter, elusive beings with trailing tendrils emerge, accompanied by mystical shadows that dance in secrecy. A vast expanse beneath conceals galaxies, while an enigmatic presence lurks to the right of the canvas, veiled in mystery. The harmony within the watery depths of this extravagant and tranquil underwater world beckons, soothing the mind and unlocking the gateway to profound, almost meditative imagination. I consider Atlantis to be among the most accomplished pieces in this collection, urging its appreciation in a spacious setting for the full impact. The juxtaposition of colors seamlessly adapts to any environment, design, and hue, inviting viewers to embark on a visual journey of wonder and contemplation. The concept of Atlantis has been a subject of fascination and speculation for centuries. Atlantis is a legendary island first mentioned by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato in his dialogues "Timaeus" and "Critias." According to Plato, Atlantis was a powerful and advanced civilization that existed around 9,000 years before his own time. The story of Atlantis involves a highly advanced society with great technological and cultural achievements. However, due to their corruption and hubris, the Atlanteans angered the gods, leading to their downfall. The island supposedly sank into the ocean in a catastrophic event. It's important to note that Atlantis is widely considered a myth or allegory, and there is no concrete evidence supporting the existence of such a civilization. Many theories and speculations exist about the possible location of Atlantis, ranging from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean, but none have been proven. The legend of Atlantis has inspired numerous works of literature, art, and popular culture, contributing to its enduring mystique and intrigue.

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.
