About The Artwork

THE WORK IS MADE WITH VERY DURABLE MATERIALS, the highest quality acrylic / vinylic colors and on Fabriano paper of 300g I created the drawings (which were engraved on the screen printing frames) interpreting, through the metamorphosis, fragments of ancient Roman statues of Hellenistic inspiration and the anatomical human body. My composition are reflections on the concept of "time" as a subjective and cultural memory, connecting the archaeological material to our contemporaneity.Each one represents an "itinerarium pictum" where I have reconstructed a "new story" humanised, alive. The Roman portrait represents the gaze that connects the ancient classical world to our contemporaneity, as well as the icon of helmets and wall-man. The blue river and the aquila icon confirm the presence of nature. Starting from silkscreen printing, I developed a special personal technique that I’ve been using for many years to create unique piece artworks, not to produce multiples. UNICUM. The preparatory drawings were engraved on screen printing frames, becoming the protagonist icons of the compositional stories as unique moments. I “painted” in “layers,” in 16 colours on Fabriano papers, applying silkscreen printing by hand, with the direct method, handling the screens as if they were paintbrushes, pencils or engraving points, thus working with superimposed “sets of shapes,” enables me to create sharp images whose strong and clean chromatic impact supports the materiality of the acrylic/vinyl colors, and at the same time renders details with great precision. The beauty of this technique also lies in the trace left by the layer of ink that passes through the screen mesh, and in the vibrant intensity of the colors.
