There is always a story behind my paintings.
The way I arrange colors and shapes expresses a movement in space and time that includes a whole series of experiences and emotions that I have lived: things that I have seen and savored, places that I have visited and loved, encounters and relationships with people, wonders, doubts, pains, joys... everything merges on the canvas when I let the pictorial gesture go freely. The canvas is the place where my soul can live out loud.
I want my paintings to be for you a voice, a hand that indicates the beauty inside yourself and in the world. The possibility of wonder. The existence of an elsewhere.
MY ARTISTIC PROCESS
I paint contemporary abstracts on canvas and paper using acrylic colors and mixed media, with techniques ranging from liquid painting to collage.
Paintings are built layer by layer, with intentionality but also with expressive freedom, in order to obtain a harmonious and energetic composition and lively textures.
My artistic practice focuses on the attempt to combine formal and geometric elements with more instinctive and organic features: colors play a role of primary importance in this because they underline this attempt and enhance it from an emotional point of view.
I live in Verona, Italy with my family: I have been working in the artistic trade for over 15 years, and since 2018 I'm a full-time artist.
I started my artistic path many years ago. At the beginning I made landscapes and other figurative genres in watercolor, now I paint abstracts on canvas in acrylic and mixed media. Between these two apparently distant moments I recognize a deep bond: it has been the continuous experimentation that always guided me and made who I am today.
Painting is not the simple application of more or less refined techniques, but it demands a continuous research within ourselves: therefore it cannot stand still but must reveal our path of knowledge.
This is still for me, every day. I started painting because I was driven by the need to understand myself. And still today, when I go in my studio and stand in front of the white canvas, that blankness ask me: who are you?
Brushstroke on brushstroke, layer upon layer, every moment brings its emotions: enthusiasm, doubt, discouragement, hope, joy... everything is part of the experience, everything is part of me, everything is welcomed with compassion and kindness.
Since I was a child, the beauty of my homeland surrounded me: nature and art seemed to blend their colors and shapes together.
Growing up I learned to know the centuries of history that were behind me and to recognize myself in the art that they gave us, traveling in Italy and in Europe. And today this experience continues with the artists from around the world whose path I follow.
For this reason my paintings lives on the memory of that past and this present, and silently dialogue with those colors and those shapes. Because, however modest, every brushstroke cannot escape the suggestion of what remained in our eyes and in our mind.
And so self-knowledge finds a shape in a collective dimension that is beyond us.
Continuous experimentation is the distinctive trait that has always guided me: from my first workshop until today, I've never stopped growing and acquiring new skills, always remaining open to the opportunities that open up to me.
