The main theme and thread of my work is light and twilight (with its full range of greys). I look for atmosphere, emotion and feeling, capturing moments of magic. I always start from the direct observation of reality, adding, if necessary, a certain poetry.
I talk about oblivion, the lightness of the hours, the inconstancy of the reality that is diluted with time. While the passage of light, I talk about full and chaotic spaces, where silence is felt, where the dust deposited by oblivion is seen. Unused, ignored, accumulated, useless books, papers and files that want to continue preserving the lived memories, stories and experiences are repetitive.
Doors and windows that close and open are also a common theme, letting us be little “voyeurs” of other lives, but the light being a permanent witness.
But I am also inspired by the little things, the objects that surround me, that I have by my side and that serve as a model to paint, because what interests me is to enjoy and enjoy feeling the painting under the brush.
I work in complicated and very elaborated compositions, where the drawing is the lead, with solid colours. I avoid stridencies and look for all nuances that can be generated from a colour.
I would like to have the ability to influence the emotion of the viewer as I feel it when I paint.
