Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

In the huge popular street markets of Palermo (Sicily): Ballaro, il Capo or la Vucciria, incredible scenes happen in between mountains of fish, vegetables, sauces, cheeses, meat… The vendor’s shouts could be compared to a crime scene, or as if something very striking just happened. These markets and vendors have a theatrical sense of life, a mix between drama and joy where the essential nature of elements and human life are revealed.
The shouts of the strawberry seller mixed with the smell of a freshly cut spleen sandwich.
This kind of scene enthusiasm me.
The physicality and excitation that I can find in these market directly impact on my work.

The relation to the street in Southern countries fascinates me: the weather seem to allow a freedom to act on the outdoor public space. I want to have the same kind of relation with life and the streets in my work. I am opposed to a practice that would develop only enclosed in the studio. My work is a dialogue between what surrounds me and the studio.
