‘Asa grown-up he still continued playing, which sometimes made himappear strange and incomprehensible to his contemporaries’ – Sigmund Freud,1910
Faithfullto my path and the idea of playfulness I proceeded in my artistic journey thatsees me ripping apart the surfaces and reunite them again in a single artwork.
Startingfrom the suggestions of what’s around me, I brake down and reassemble theelements keeping the suggestion of the original archetype. Prompting the viewerto perceive figures that are at the same time familiar and elusive.
Leonardo’sknown elements are taken from their time and place and taken to the here andnow. A permanent revolution, a constant game of mutation, in which the knownisn’t anymore known: it has become other, new, elusive, sometimes evendisturbing.
Unique, Vibrant, Elegant, Moving Artwork
My roots are steadily planted both in the classical Italian art and in the more free and unchained US approach.
My mother and grandparents where from Los Angeles and my work is a continuous integration within the historic and visual richness of Roman views and the Californian wideopen landscape and glaring light.
I like to do and show the physical work, the imperfection in the repetition, the uniqueness of the gesture. This is why I mostly use freehand techniques.
