Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Paint and Gesso on Canvas.

What began as a tribute to Leonardo Bistolfi's La Bellezza liberata dalla materia, transformed into Freyja the goddess of love standing before an explosive endless eruption of power.

One of my first treasured stories was of the adventures of the shape-shifter Kamapua'a and his romance with the fire goddess Pele. These legends and the islands endless color variations are engraved in my palette.

Humbled by nature
This series The Elements - Humbled by Nature is a fusion of styles; abstract and figurative, morphing people I know and places I've lived to create my own mythological archetypes in surreal landscapes. I paint on heavy large linen panels which eventually hang loosely, to evoke the feeling of a tapestry.

The original works were painted using acrylic paints and gold leaf on Italian linen in Piemonte, Italy. The Elements were exhibited at theses galleries:
