Artist's description:

Posto Segreto is my interpretation of a secret place, one that is physical or purely of the imagination where one can escape. Juxtaposed images of ancient frescos, fading paintwork and urban decay aim to evoke a particular sense of time and place.

My paintings rarely begin with an external influence or concrete idea and if you were to x-ray my paintings you would find several unresolved paintings buried beneath subsequent layers of cold wax and oil paint of contrasting colour and shape. Each piece is built upon in this way until I am vaguely happy with composition, I then re-introduce areas of strata below by gouging and melting the surface with sharp implements and solvent reduction. The process is rather similar to an archaeological dig in which the archaeologist searches for an ancient fresco under layers of coloured earth. I find the endeavour of developing a conversation between layers of the painting albeit challenging, ultimately very exciting.

Posto Segreto is painted on primed MDF cradled panel and is unframed. The painting will be carefully packaged and will be courier insured. Every attempt will be made to ship the item within 7 days with the fastest service available.
