Artist's description:

Triptych of paintings of the serie "Innesti/Grafts". Each painting is made on paper applied on wooden board and measure 25 x 24 x 4 cm. I think they are so cute together! These works are available singularly on this site, but with this solution you can save 150 euros :-)! All the three artworks come ready to hang.

All my artworks are shipped through the Italian postal service + insurance and using materials suitable for carrying and protect fine art objects.

The serie aims to show how Italian chestnuts are invaded by a Chinese parasite called Dryocosmus kuriphilus. Since this parasite doesn't belong to Italian ecosystem, it is leading our beautiful chestnut woods to a severe illness, with the production of chestnuts down to the 10% of the the original amount. This means not only a natural damage, but also an important economic loss for Italian regions like Tuscany, rich in chestnut woods and productor of chestnuts. All the paintings of this serie shows female bodies "grafted" with ill chestnut twigs. The red balls among the leaves are the galls in which Dryocosmos kuriphilus maggots lays until they become a sort of small black wasp. The ill leaves fall before their time and the entire tree results debilitate.These works are realized on paper applied on wooden board. The leaves are in relief because they are painted on a cardbord applied on the painting. The board edges of each painting are "framed" with stapled recycled fabrics. The b-sides of the works are decorated with collages made with photos and vintage '30 Italian magazine, but they can be enjoyed only by the future owner of the work!!!
