I was born in San Gimignano, Italy, in 1955. I studied art and architecture in Florence attending the Academy of Fine Arts, and I started my job in 1980 as a graphic designer while continuing my research in artistic painting.
Through my work I try to analyze and represent the life that surrounds me or pass me by, just brushing . My favorite subjects are human figures immersed in their world, educated , that is, in poses and attitudes that identify the mood and suggest their personality. What interests me most is to discover the relationships between shapes and colors that are evident from the careful observation of reality and this is expressed in a strictly personal representation of the object. Through the filter of my work observers can therefore grasp the point of view of my own , but they are also free to interpret the subject as they please , so participate in the re-creation of the work perfect. Ultimately with my colors , my drawings , the shapes that I paint I suggest a possible interpretation of reality, mine, but the case remains open to the infinite possibilities of the personal experience of each.
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 do , I feel the colors, shadows, scompongo 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 .
