Artist Statement

My painting does not come from the easel, nor from the brush. In fact, I began to paint without predefined schemes and based on the inspiration of the moment, free dense layers of wrinkled and irregular color, spread with quick and instinctive gestures. I then connected the body of color to heterogeneous tactile material - poor, recovered, worn out by time and use - modulating in the same space glazes and large material congregations that, in some places, almost re-emerge to dilate the surface of the canvas. My performance is consumed quickly with the drying of the color. In my actions I feel free to accumulate and then engrave, scratch, cut, burn, wound, puncture the material, exploring only weaves, stumbles, collisions of signs. Hence immaterial spaces and atmospheres beyond recognizable forms.
In creating this indecipherable visual alphabet - of extraordinary freedom and ease of execution-, the physical consistency of the work and the corporeality of the light whose expressive and aesthetic values are represented by the colors and materials used, acquire primary importance.
Thus, in the foreground, a tactile-visual body appears emptied of any formal residue that contains its own time, as if it had traveled a long journey. Completely autonomous, self-sufficient reality, free and without historical or social references, in whose crossing-comparison-meeting everyone can follow the breath of himself. I therefore consider my works of open and unexpected containers available to those who want to interloquire, questioning, be uneasy together to me on the meaning of life, renewing at each event of the contemporary painting.
So far a pictorial space in the making that has physicality and corporeality as its common denominator. Finally, the contribution of nature is essential to complete the work that is exposed to the wind, rain and sun, to combine nature and culture, life and history. The titles of the paintings placed at the end of the work instead trace an invisible track of the psyche reasons and, in particular, of the personal expressions that, from time to time, have marked moments of inner transformation and ever greater interpenetration of the surrounding world, maintaining a recognizable original dimension, its own identity.

La mia pittura non viene dal cavalletto, né dal pennello. Ho cominciato infatti a dipingere senza schemi predefiniti e basando sullispirazione del momento liberi densi strati di colore rugosi ed irregolari, stesi con gesti veloci e istintivi. Ho poi collegato il corpo del colore a della materia tattile eterogenea – povera, di recupero, logorata dal tempo e dalluso – modulando nello stesso spazio velature e grosse congregazioni materiche che, in taluni punti, riemergono quasi a dilatare la superficie della tela. La mia performance si consuma veloce con l’asciugatura del colore.
Nel mio agire mi sento libero di accumulare per poi incidere, graffiare, tagliare, bruciare, ferire, bucare la materia, esplorando solo intrecci, inciampi, collisioni di segni. Da qui spazi e atmosfere immateriali al di là di forme riconoscibili. Nella creazione di questo indecifrabile alfabeto visivo - di straordinaria libertà e scioltezza esecutiva-, acquista per me un’importanza primaria la consistenza fisica del lavoro e la corporeità della luce i cui valori espressivi ed estetici sono rappresentati dai colori e dalla materia utilizzati.
Si presenta così, in primo piano, un corpo tattile-visivo svuotato da ogni residuo formale che contiene un suo proprio tempo, come se avesse percorso un lungo viaggio. Realtà completamente autonoma, autosufficiente, libere e prive di riferimenti storici o sociali, nel cui attraversamento-confronto-incontro ciascuno può al limite seguire il soffio di sé stesso. Considero, quindi, i miei lavori dei contenitori aperti e imprevisti a disposizione di chi vuole interloquire, interrogarsi, inquietarsi insieme a me sul senso della vita, rinnovando ad ogni evento la contemporaneità della pittura. Fin qui uno spazio pittorico nel “farsi” che ha come comune denominatore la fisicità e la corporeità. Infine l’apporto della natura è fondamentale per completare l’opera che viene esposta al vento, alla pioggia e al sole, per unire natura e cultura, vita e storia. I titoli dei quadri posti a fine lavoro rintracciano invece una traccia invisibile delle ragioni della psiche e, in particolar modo, delle espressioni personali che, di volta in volta, hanno segnato momenti di trasformazione interiore e sempre maggior compenetrazione del mondo circostante, mantenendo una riconoscibile dimensione originaria, un’identità propria.

Ma peinture ne vient ni du chevalet, ni du pinceau. En fait, jai commencé à peindre sans schémas prédéfinis et en fonction de linspiration du moment, des couches denses libres de couleur ridée et irrégulière, réparties avec des gestes rapides et instinctifs. Jai ensuite relié le corps de la couleur à un matériau tactile hétérogène - pauvre, récupéré, usé par le temps et lutilisation - modulant dans le même espace les glaçures et les grandes congrégations de matériaux qui, à certains endroits, réapparaissent presque pour dilater la surface de la toile. Ma performance se consume rapidement avec le séchage de la couleur.
Dans mes actions, je me sens libre daccumuler puis de graver, gratter, couper, brûler, blesser, perforer le matériau, en explorant uniquement les tissages, les trébuchements, les collisions de signes. Doù des espaces et atmosphères immatériels au-delà des formes reconnaissables.
En créant cet alphabet visuel indéchiffrable - dune liberté et dune facilité dexécution extraordinaires-, la cohérence physique de lœuvre et la corporéité de la lumière dont les valeurs expressives et esthétiques sont représentées par les couleurs et les matériaux utilisés, acquièrent une importance primordiale.
Ainsi, au premier plan, un corps tactile-visuel apparaît vidé de tout résidu formel qui contient son propre temps, comme sil avait parcouru un long voyage. Réalité complètement autonome et autosuffisante, libre et sans références historiques ou sociales, dans laquelle que la rencontre-comparaison-croisement chacun peut suivre son souffle. Je considère donc mes œ...   Read More
