This “metamorphosis” is part of my artistic production "Anatomic Tables", so named by the historian and critic of modern and contemporary art Giorgio Di Genova.
Domestic and sacred icon, the cow is an animal that has accompanied man for thousands of years, both in life and in the visual representation. It 'a beautiful animal, but also funny, ironic and easy to interpret, but eternal. The composition is a list of hypostasis, using in a playful way the relationship between the metamorphosis and mutation.
The cow symbolizes nourishment, the nature, the instinct, the ancestral, the sacredness, the Earth.
I began working around this theme 28 years ago, when my favourite works were the drawings, engravings and lithographies. Then, I started to use the body of animals (cow, horse, wild boar, pork) and the human body as pretexts in my creations.
