ABOUT ME AND MY ART
One could think it is that a painter talks about his own art, not a critic, as happens most of the times.
If I do it, my dear friends, there is a reason behind it. It is that I know myself completely. I know my intimate motivation and my sources of inspiration. Please, forgive me if I sound narcissistic for this is not the intention. My paintings are always positive, conceptual, and a representation of a constant dream. I do not represent reality, I interpret my world, a world that I aspire to, where every element harmonically interact with the other in a context that is never static, but in a steady evolution. The humanoid subjects, the animal-like ones, and the backgrounds where they live show the never ending physical and behavioural dynamics. Although having a definite personality, each of these subjects on the canvass are still consciously part of a same living organism, which is the supreme goal of their existence. A corporeal organism, sometimes ethereal and even spiritual, an organism called LIFE, a marvellous anomaly of this universe, otherwise cold, schematic and aseptic. The main source of inspiration for me is life in its everlasting evolution, and its elements such as water. For me, water is to be considered as amniotic liquid, a source of life dating back to the creation of the world. Everything originates from it, and everything would die without it. The fishes, often portrayed in my works, are not just part of the painting, they are our ancestors, our friends, and our companions in the journey of life. The humanoid subjects are never complete. They are always influenced by animal features, in a constant development of their bodies. They tell us how life as a whole is never static or inalterable, but it changes and develops all the time, following rules that only seem chaotic, but are not. Everything has a reason to be, and each change is aimed at adapting the living organisms to the ever-changing environment, improving every part of their bodies, and at positively perfect the psychological aspect. I believe life, although cruel, is always a source of happiness. It is an unrepeatable chance that should not be wasted. In all of my paintings you can see some idyllic worlds, like dreams of peace and equilibrium we have to aim at, universes to be created and reached. In particular the ability of flying has to be regarded as corporeal exaltation, physical rarefaction that frees the soul from any material limitation. In my works colour is very important. My vision of the present is colourful. I sometimes use bright colours and sometimes light as a proof of my optimism and faith in the possible improvement of every single thing as well as my faith in the positivism of the human soul. The interaction of colours in my works has a vibrant effect on myself, like music. As it happens with music, who observes the painting will react instinctively, not framed in a specific context. Lines are pure and clear, no graphical hesitations are on my canvasses. This is in line with my need for intellectual clarity and a rational thinking based on respect of priorities and the logical relationship between cause and effect. Therefore, chaos, uncertainty and mistrust in the future do not represent myself at all, even though I am well aware of the difficulties and obstacles to overcome and the recurrence of historical patterns. In my opinion, what is important is to always be aiming at an improvement, both spiritual and practical. All of my works have been painted using English synthetic enamels, thin brushes number one or two, and of course all is made by my own hands.
