Paintings 2009-2018

This project is started in 2009 and it is focused on the landscape genre, contemporary urban and suburban views, intended as insight on our environment and what will remain of our time. 

The landscape genre for me is a departure point to examine the human presence and its encroachment on the natural world. I am interested in the relationship between men and the environment, in particular on the urban and industrial landscapes as footprints of humanity. 

The influences of my work move from places I have experienced my all life.

I am fascinated by old and abandoned elements, urban and industrial, their materials and their eventual decay, as well as the powerful and liberating gesture of the matter. Urban decay, alienation of the suburbs and abandoned buildings which "record the decline of the futuristic illusion and cherish the memory of the great missing: the man." (D. Madonna). 

I start my works using photography and drawings, and I experiment with media and materials (such as iron, sand, bronze and copper leaf, combustion, acids, etc.). I love to mix different and incompatible media like oil, acrylic, enamel, and layers of different primers and materials in order to give my work a textured look.

I also realized several STAMPS for this project.

Lino printing 2011-2016

These stamps come from the contemporary landscape project, from the relationship between men and the environment, in particular on the urban and industrial landscapes as a footprint of humanity. They are linocuts printed in rusty colors.
