Through the search for unusual solutions,the artist is able to explore the potential and limitations of painting itself, understood in both its physical and conceptual sense: the media becomes the testing of unconventional materials, which at the same time found a link with deep meaning of his paintings, with their poetic counterparts. A web of links from which also the raw material has to do with the thought that generated the work: for example, the ash used to give body to the painting refers to cremation, the rubble of cities destroyed, lost, that no longer exist but alive in monochrome of the artist. Reading is not immediate, the work needs to be seen with a look different, clean, pure, washed by those preconceptions that do not allow you to understand that a landscape or a portrait can be just a line drawn. In fact, searching the landscape or a face, such as the autobiographical, have become essential and synthetic, but behind much abstraction actually lurks a very concrete idea: fascinated from elusive, the artist tries to capture and give it the consideration on the canvas. The work, therefore, is undoubtedly minimal, but it is precisely because of this new vision that wants to go beyond the limits trying endless possibilities, that the representation is revealed in all its tangible consistency. The desire to bring everything in nothing is also manifested in the use of colors that clears more and more: the latest production includes white, rarely pale pink, but also paintings of the black color, a color that would wrap everything, which absorbs all the light, color, sound.
