Paintings Archive

An archive containing most of the paintings made from 2017 onwards.


VIBRANT REALITY / 2021
Paintings on canvas in which I portray the vibrant reality in which we return to live.

NEW IDENTITIES / 2021
Paintings on canvas or canvassed paper taken from photographs. Painting gives a new reality to the identities of the subjects depicted.

VERMILION PERIOD / 2020 -2021
The figures trapped in waiting in a non-place. Where is the room? How long have they been there? The synthesis of the signs is the basis of my research.

DIGITAL PAINTING / 2021
Not having the availability of a large number of canvases, I paint some images digitally. For this type of images I keep the research on intimacy, on our most sincere identity.

BLACK PERIOD / 2019 – 2020
What are we in the face of inevitable death? Both as a child and as an adult, life is a macabre game. Thus, projected into oblivion, we will be erased and what remains of us is a memory … synthetic.

WHITE PERIOD / 2020
The period of imprisonment due to COVID-19 led me to search for the feeling of loss of self-awareness. The figures immersed in a synthetic and anonymous space, turn their backs on the observer.

INFERNO DI DANTE (THE HELL OF DANTE) / 2020/2021
Inferno is the name of my research based not only on the identity of the damned described by Dante, but also on some social problems.

THE FACE OF DAPHNE / 2018
I deepened my research on the myth of Daphne by merging body and landscape, to study the loss of individual identity in favor of a return to nature.

THE WHITE SKY OF THE FIELDS OF THIENE / 2017
Paintings taken from drawings that aimed to synthesize the landscapes of the fields of Thiene, my hometown. Moving away and getting closer to the subject allowed me to grasp all its aspects.
