The stories behind the artworks that make them alive
I am a visual artist, freelance curator and writer. Literature, poetry and history feed my understanding of Art, and they allow me to see much more than what an image shows. Interdisciplinarity is my mentor, beauty my truth. Writing about what I love is a way to get closer to the artworks, and sharing my visions with others make them real. I currently live and work in San Francisco, where I decided to stop for the next years after have worked, studied and visited other places around the world (Italy, France, United Kingdom, South East Asia and Australia).
Art is not what but how, this is the vision that drives my understanding of what surrounds me and how to interpret it. Everything changes constantly and for this reason impressions, thoughts and memories are the only eyes I trust. My works born from this kind of gaze. They are my world, which can be resumed in 3 words: illustration, wood, line. The illustrative style allows me to give shape to my imagination. Wood is my favorite medium, chosen for its natural pattern, hardness and for its symbolic meaning that make it a deeply poetic matter. Line is the representative element of my work, it draws the silhouettes’ outline, it becomes a decorative pattern, it is a precision’s source. In 2015 I started to experiment other expressive languages beside drawing and paintings, such as photography and mixed media.
