”This drawing is the fruit of natural observation towards the marine landscape from my home in Genoa, northern Italy, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The drawing is part of my Biroscape  series, number 245. All Biroscapes  are small windows that open onto possible worlds, both real and unreal. When viewed live, the small size forces the viewer to get very close to the work. It is like seeing from a small hole in a wall and observing the immensity of the sea, or other space. I think this is very important because, in addition to the subject represented, I think it is necessary to perceive the technique with which it is represented. The size of a design is not important, in my opinion; the dimension is perceived by the viewer from within the drawing itself, whatever its size. The horizon in my landscapes tends to be low because it allows the perception of a deep, distant, broad horizon. Height and length are measures that cannot be changed on a small cardboard, the only size that can vary is the depth. This type of subject allows the artist to take full advantage of that peculiarity.
The type of board I use is very smooth and allows me to just touch the surface and get the shade I want. I use a classic black Bic Crystal pen with a 1mm thick tip. The variation of pressure on the pen or its angle determine completely different results that I try to make the most of with interesting solutions. When drawing with a light pressure and obtaining a soft shade you have to remember to pause to clean the tip of the pen to avoid smudging, so I pass it on a sheet of paper two or three times per minute to guarantee cleanliness. The slightest stain on such a small surface would compromise the whole mood”

The larger the size, the greater the distance

In this case the dimensions of the work will become part of the judgment?The artwork of art has different dimensions, but the stare maintains the same proportional relationship with it. The larger the size, the greater the distance.

That is to say, therefore, that from a proportional point of view there are no differences in dimensions but it is only a question of proximity or distance of the gaze.

If it is bigger, I have to move away, and if it is smaller, I have to approach it, but the look at it keeps the same portion of space for it unchanged.

Another thing is the decorative destination of the artwork. In this case the dimensions of the work will become part of the judgment?

So the perception we have of it is influenced by the use made of it, regardless of the pure value of the work of art? Does the work of art have an absolute value or is it determined by the use made of it?
