Represented by Leonarda Zappulla Italian Art Critic

I was honored in the article written about my work by Bruno Cimino writer, journalist, screenwriter and director.

 

Poetry, architecture, design, music, cinema, as well as philosophy, mythology and alchemy are my daily influences. 

I started by exploring drawing, then oil painting, and finally computer design programs, before becoming interested in photography, a medium that allowed me to develop my personal technique, and to create the atmosphere of my work. It works with metaphysical resonance, preserving magic and mystery...

Photography is the raw material, which is then formed by a computer pictorial work.

The idea is to represent reality in an unreal way (not photographic), that is in a subjective way. A «better living in the world» is possible thanks to the imagination and reverie, in the infinity of inside and outside. 

And even if the characters reflect loneliness or longing, it is a happy loneliness or longing. The sky, permanent, is a place of transcendence and infinity, as well as the sea or metaphorically the swimming pool, the presence of water which is life, our mother who welcomes us, our first home, a protective intimacy our living space and our first place in the world. The clouds depicted indicate movement,

instability, and reality suspended between earth and sky. Birds are mediators between heaven and earth as well as angels, spiritual figures embodied in a theatrical sense.

Flight, dream and freedom permeate each of my creations. And love, the door that opens to poetry and to the fantastic world.
