Statement

 

My work starts from a photographic matrix which I use to keep contact with reality.
I set up real photographic sets that are essential for the realization of my paintings. I use the medium of oil painting as if it were a filter, that I apply to the technical and objective reality of photography.
Through this mental filter that only painting can show, I intend to make visible an inner reality that goes through the human being during his daily life.                                                                                          

In my works, especially in the most recent, individuals with ambiguous identities appear, frozen in an indefinite instant of time. They appear occupied in actions apparently irrelevant.                               

I am interested in a condition of ambiguity and absence of clear personality of the protagonists of these possible living spaces. Each spectator can potentially identify himself on it.                      

It is as if the absence of definition of these individuals actually shows an intimate condition of isolation and lack of communication with the outside world.
My aim is to establish an intimate dialogue between the spectator and this other reality.
