This painting is part of a series called "Secret Garden." At one point, after painting landscapes of all kinds, I decided to approach the subject, leaving the overall vision to dedicate myself to the particular. What interests me describe in this series of works is the intimate perception of things, intangible details, colors unnoticeable if not zooming to the maximum. It is a backward procedure to achieve an abstract view of nature.
In my path I needed to emphasize the matter that I was painting, so I decided to use, contrary to my usual, the oil that allows me to get that grain, the roughness in the surface that help me better to describe this little inner world.
This research, this series of works marked an important point in my painting experience because it allowed me to stop and look inside myself to redefine the objectives and topics of my artistic adventure. Move from the general to the particular involved a completely different approach to my painting, abandoning the more figurative aspect in favor of a more gestural, expressionistic, and often calligraphy.
