About The Artwork

In "Circle of life," the canvas unveils a mesmerizing journey through the universe, where every brushstroke narrates a story of life's intricate dance. Placed prominently on the middle-left side is a captivating circle, a profound symbol representing the eternal cycle of life. The backdrop, a deep and velvety black, serves as a metaphorical canvas for the universe itself. It encapsulates the vastness and mystery of the cosmos, creating a cosmic expanse that extends beyond the limits of the frame. This choice of a cosmic backdrop not only sets the stage but also invites viewers to contemplate the boundless connections that exist in the universe. At the heart of the composition, the circle takes center stage, embodying the cycle of life in all its vibrant glory. Like a celestial spectacle, colors cascade from the circle, resembling comets streaking across the cosmic canvas. Each hue carries its own significance, a visual representation of life's myriad experiences, emotions, and phases. The cosmic circle becomes a nexus, intricately connected with everything around it. It serves as a reminder that, in the grand tapestry of existence, every life is interwoven with the cosmos. The delicate dance of colors symbolizes the ebb and flow of life's energies, creating a dynamic and harmonious visual narrative. As the viewer gazes upon "Circle of life", the intention is clear—to provoke contemplation on the interconnectedness of all things. Inspired by the mysteries of the universe and the profound cycle of life, this artwork invites you to explore the cosmic ballet that binds us to the vastness beyond, where every color drop is a cosmic comet in the eternal journey of existence. This artwork holds a special place for me, symbolizing the beginning of a significant artistic journey and a deep connection to my cultural roots. It marks the genesis of this particular line of work, where I started to explore the profound dimensions of my creativity.

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.
