Synthetic reality

Synthetic Life is a research in which I imagine the subjects of my paintings, born to document a state of mind that characterized the period of confinement in a non-place, assume a new and different self-awareness in the virtual world, a world in which we are projected and involved with increasing intensity. I like to think that they come to life and look with curiosity in this new dimension, while always remaining anchored in their frame that looks at reality on one side and virtual reality on the other.
They lose their own identity and take on a new, masked one.
In this way I study the difference between real people in a real world and avatars in a digital reality, finding that there aren’t many.
