The subjects depicted in my paintings are evocations of sensory experiences relating to the natural phenomenon. Direct memories, as literary or photographic references, stimulate a critical deepening of the shamanic dimension in the context of man / nature naturans, identifying with the variable relationship between popular culture and art in the most specific sense.

My works reproduce ambiguous dimensions between the abstract and the figurative with the express purpose of reawakening the primitive root that is dormant but inherent in us.

The intent to increase the tactile dimension of some works is through the addition of external materials to the pictorial medium, while the formal execution combined with the desaturated palette, links apparently different subjects, be they landscapes or chromatic impressions, as they are caused by the same Premise.

The title of the last body of work, "Indirections", refers to a poetic literary approach investigated first by Emerson and later by Whitman, here transposed on canvas in a visual key. A serene hypnosis of the senses is triggered by a peripheral perception of the surrounding environment. Chromatic dimensions provoke our sensory spectrum evoking a primitive spirituality. This apparently whispered approach through indirect routes intends to transport the user of the work into an acute perceptive state and then to an intimate reflective dialogue.
