Sculpture: acrylic, pencil, glue on Paper, Wood.
The KRYPTA series:
Relief and assemblage work, half-painting half-sculpture - geometrical constructions overlaid with painting, drawing and written panels incrusted, intarsia-like, into the supporting frame. The word «Krypta» (from Greek «hidden», «secret») stands for an artistic expression that depicts neither the reality nor the abstraction of our conscious perception of being, but the imago of an unconscious area of the mind not immediately accessible to analytical intelligence.
« Sanctuary » :
Conform to the arte povera doctrine, the material used - industrial paint, glue, paper, plywood - has no intrinsic monetary value. The legitimation of the oeuvre is purely artistic. For my assemblage work, I also use found objects which are inserted «brut» so as to avoid all risk of prettifying. In my recent work, I increasingly abandon the notion of making images and rather see my wall sculptures as an extension of architecture - building (stricly non-religious) sanctuaries against an often threatening environment.
