“The Sun, Suddenly”


Oil on Canvas, 100 x 100 cm, May 2019

When I am asked about the subjects I paint, I feel I need to clarify that any image I choose is to convey the representation of the sign that makes up the object. There is not a desire for conceptualization in this, nor an attempt to dissociate from one or more genres, there is a determination in wanting to separate the two readings in a decisive manner, so as to establish a bridge between meaning and signifier, keeping both on completely different levels and at the same time absolutely superimposable.

Quando mi chiedono dei soggetti che dipingo mi sento di dover chiarire che qualsiasi immagine io scelga, è per veicolare la rappresentazione del segno che compone l’oggetto. Non c’è in questo un desiderio di concettualizzazione, né tantomeno un tentativo di smarcamento da uno o più generi, c’è la determinazione nel voler scindere in maniera determinante le due letture, così da stabilire un ponte fra il significato e il significante, mantenendo entrambi su piani completamente diversi e nel contempo assolutamente sovrapponibili.

The Bet’s video, birth and development of a bet.


In this video with some images in a timeline, I show the development that led to the painting.
The work satisfied me both for its construction, and how the various parts i have painted. This picture shows a robin in flight, a walking cat and a woman talking on the phone. Of these three creatures, the only one that we know where it will go is the cat, because it will goes to the woman. The background participates in a fundamental way, creating a livable, accessible space where the three characters can act. But what will happen once the cat will reach the woman? Time is crystallized into an eternal bet. The bet that is the invention of painting where everything is determined by the passage of the time, and the flow of the time has allowed at the painting to take shape. The brushstroke, every single brushstroke, allows a formal reading. We can see his develope, we can see passage of the time and how be can represented it. Through the excuse of the three characters story, the colors are laid on the canvas with the brushstrokes, one after the other, and represent the true work of art, that is, the time spend to paint it, . Painting is painting and it is also the artist, because within it is enclosed its time.

“My Brother Mauro”


Oil on Canvas Panel, 30 x 40 cm, 2017, June.

Artwork is the choice of using a manner of painting to get a result. Anything that’s on the canvas, like or not, is what I wanted to get.

L’opera d’arte, è la scelta di usare un modo di dipingere per ottenere un risultato. Tutto ciò che è sulla tela, Piaccia o no, è quello che volevo ottenere.

My brother Mauro
