To paint is for me to choose a
way to fix a personal vision of reality on a flat surface. The
suggestion of other dimensions is part of the outcome obtained
and is empowered to embody the many areas of the spirit as well
as of the memory and of the prophesy. The surfaces in which
I paint become sometimes a battle field for the fight between
flesh(sarx) and spirit(pneuma). Is like a chessboard full of
aesthetic(forma)and spiritual challenges. Is as it is my own
I prepare surfaces(mostly paper or stretched linen or canvas)to
receive the trip of the light from dawn to dusk. In this changing
light I produce images ready to transmit their inner and formal
sense and to receive the personal world of the viewer. Forms
dissolve,light becomes line and light flies.
To me there is not a great difference between figurative and
abstract painting. I always paint what I see. But what I see
is the beauty of the forms as an inspiration to create a set
of new significant and beautiful objects representing themselves
and ready to establish a relationship of intimacy with whoever
gets in touch with them.
I admire many painters: Leonardo's drawings,Wifredo Lam's dynamics;
the sensual and spiritual message of Paul Gauguin,the elegance
of Botticelli; the pure and inviting color of Joseph Marioni.
I am a painter of brush and hand: a painter of visual memories.
But I pay attention to the artists of the camera and to any
form of new art. I am always immersed in a learning experience.
