In the field of the image, painting represents for me the absolute art. It is like an opening on the spiritual world that inhabits nature. Because of this, it speaks directly to the mind of the one who looks at it without going through understanding, it is a matter of intuition and escapes reasoning.
In my achievements, I always try to show a kind of deep truth that shakes the mind. Colors, light, matter come together in landscapes to spark escape and freedom, both correlated with the desire for a dreamy, fantasized world.
I want to provoke a feeling of attraction towards nature, the unknown, the mystery, the dreamlike. For me nature is a symbol, it is sacred and bears within it the traces of something that goes beyond it and speaks to that part of ourselves that we share with it.
I try, through various more or less abstract researches, to paint the border that binds man to nature and separates it at the same time. I try to paint the past and future presence, the imprint, the passage, the presence and absence of time.
My goal is to generate an interrogative contemplation, to freeze time and to induce an atmosphere suggested by the hidden side of the elements, including in urban landscapes treated as natural sites rather than as human creations.
I like the idea that painting makes the one who looks at it better thanks to the emotion it transmits to him.
