My work could appear manifold at first glance, but in reality it follows a simple research, the relationship between lines and colors, figure and background.
I have created different series of works, each of them thought of as an autonomous project, exploring specific ideas or themes.I return to each of these different series every couple of years or so in order to push forward their potentialities.
My investigation in art has been driven by my fascination with Byzantine icons and Italian paintings from the Quattrocento, as timeless, enlightening and magical devices.
In my view a piece of art is, in many ways, a magical device, something that both receives and transmits information, something that actually does something, has an effect on both the space and the viewer.
To quote Mark Rothko: “Pictures must be miraculous…” or, as artist Eva Hesse said, "Don't ask what the work is. Rather, see what the work does."
