Through my work, I try to analyze and represent the life that surrounds me or passes by me . My favorite subjects are human figures immersed in their world, educated in poses and attitudes that identify the mood and suggest their personality. What interests me the most is discovering the relationships between shapes and colors that are evident from the careful observation of reality, which is expressed in a strictly personal representation of the object. Through the filter of my work, observers can therefore grasp my point of view, as well as be able to freely interpret the subject as they please, so as to participate in the re-creation of the work. Ultimately with my colors, my drawings and the shapes that I paint, I suggest a possible interpretation of reality, mine of course, but the case remains open to the infinite possibilities of the personal experience of each viewer. Each painting has its own history and its own staff gestation. Everyone can contribute to the initial spark, a picture, a phrase, a piece of music. Before starting on a piece, I spend a lot of time thinking about the overall design of the new table, the patterns of colors to use, what to emphasize and what to leave in the background. Generally I take a lot of notes - with every sketch I do, I feel the colors, shadows, scompongo (i.e. break up) the subject in portions then put it schematically into various compositions. This whole process can take days or weeks but when it’s time to paint the work is spun down without a second thought .
I use watercolors on handmade paper with cotton rags. The handmade paper is a beautiful card that's imported from India and is heavy and wrinkled, with a strong personality that requires much attention and experience to master. I also work on canvas. Acrylics allow me to work in a manner similar to watercolors on surfaces other than paper and I guarantee you great freedom of expression.
