“Represent life is the main purpose of my painting. The human figure, cities, nature constitute excellent subjects to be studied and transferred onto the canvas or on paper, but what most interests me is to discover and highlight the relationship that exists between the forms and colors of what I in front of. This relationship can be discovered through careful observation of reality and is manifested in a strictly personal representation of the object.”
Each painting has its own history and its own staff gestation. Everyone can contribute to the initial spark , a picture , a phrase, a music. Before starting I spend much time thinking about the overall design of the new table, the patterns of colors to use , what to emphasize and what to leave in the background. Generally I take a lot of notes, sketches, I feel the colors, shadows, shred the subject in portions then recompose otherwise, schematically various compositions. This whole process can take days or weeks but when it’s time to paint the work is spun down without a second thought.
Works on paper. Using watercolors on handmade paper with cotton rags , is a beautiful card , imported from India , heavy and wrinkled, with a strong personality that requires much attention and experience to master it.
Works on canvas. Acrylics allow me to work in a manner similar to watercolors on surfaces other than paper and I guarantee you great freedom of expression.
