About The Artwork

A maze of signs and mirrors that scratch the backgrounds and instinctively tangle like ineffable spaces of freedom that express tensions, anxieties, harmonies, balances, imbalances. A painting that operates "by way of removing" tracing furrows on the color, digging on the surface, removing material. It is a painting that uses fire, almost a reference to the origins of the encaustic, to engrave a story without a plot that would like to establish a dialogue of light with the emotion of the observer, where to reflect the sense of what we feel, what we desire. Un labirinto di segni e specchi che scalfiscono le campiture e s’aggrovigliano istintivi come ineffabili spazi di libertà che esprimono tensioni, inquietudini, armonie, equilibri, squilibri. Una pittura che opera “per via di levare” tracciando solchi sul colore, scavando sulla superficie, asportando materia. È una pittura che usa il fuoco, quasi un rimando ai primordi dell’encausto, per incidere un racconto senza trama che vorrebbe instaurare con l’emozione dell’osservatore un dialogo di luce, dove riflettere il senso di ciò che sentiamo, ciò che desideriamo. Un dédale de signes et de miroirs qui rayent les arrière-plans et s'emmêlent instinctivement comme des espaces de liberté ineffables qui expriment des tensions, des angoisses, des harmonies, des équilibres, des déséquilibres. Une peinture qui opère «par élimination» traçant des sillons sur la couleur, creusant à la surface, enlevant la matière. C'est une peinture qui utilise le feu, presque une référence aux origines de l'encaustique, pour graver une histoire sans intrigue qui voudrait établir un dialogue de lumière avec l'émotion de l'observateur, où refléter le sens de ce que nous ressentons, de ce que nous désirons.

My artistic research is closely linked to the vision of the world as a movement permeated by the energy of human fragility. At the core of my work lies the idea of «Corpus-et-Vulnus,» an existential alchemical synthesis that merges the physical and spiritual aspects. Visually, it’s not just about haptic volumes triggered within the device. I move within the unusual space of interstitial zones between painting∞sculpture, influenced by the language of cinema, dance, music, and photography, in order to continually re-signify exhibition spaces and experiment with practices that foster a unique process of relationships. This process can unveil a shared lexicon between artists and participants. Among many other things, I have also abandoned the nail of painting being attached to the wall of a white cube and brought the devices down from the pedestal to the ground amidst the «contemporary cathedrals of vulnerability»: former prisons-asylums-slaughterhouses-hospitals-church-boats… hibernated places in our metropolises where we can discover what lies behind-the-functioning-world. To concretize my artistic vision, I have named the devices “Communicating Artistic Organisms” because they do not have a fixed and concluded form, but are composed of an ever-evolving “Cosmic-Fabric-Weave,” where everything is in a state of change: chemical reactions, fermentations, chromatic alterations, and decay. This name reinforces the idea that art is a process closely linked to life as raw material and involves an active and inclusive interpretative nature between artists and participants, where the entire process of relationships that ensues can reveal connections, affinities, and possible developments. Expanding on the terms of site-specific and site-sensitive devices, I speak of «Site-Coexistence,» which is the attempt to create not a confrontation but a dialogue between multiple existences for a more impactful experience, even if confined to the time and space of the exhibition performance. My personal artistic language has developed through experimentation and inspiration from great masters such as Kiefer, Parmiggiani, Beuys… My artistic design is heavily influenced by the tradition of informal and conceptual art, in which the irreversible and continuous transformation of the «Body-beyond-Matter» is an integral part of an «Nomadic Ethics» and «Aesthetics-of-Convergence» based on the creative mechanisms of Ruins.
