(1972- )
Nationality: it Italy


87 artworks   Artistic domains : Drawing, Mixed Media, Painting, Sculpture

I was born in Mesagne (Italy) in 1972 but my family is from Venice were I grew up. I’ve studied art at the University “Ca Foscari” of Venice were I graduated, and after I obtained the title of art historian at the University “La Sapienza” of Rome. I’ve been pursuing my studies following and the same time my passion for drawing and painting doing three courses in the “Scuola Internazionale di Grafica” and the anatomy course at the Academy of fine arts. Now I live and I work in Rome as artist and art historian.
"I can define my work as the art of the fragment. I adore travelling physically and with my imagination, in the forgotten spaces like some of the urban or the industrial decay. I follow my instinct deeply convinced that a kind of beauty is hidden everywhere, and I receive the fascination of the materials destroyed and transformed so that it's hard to remember what there was before...Anyway I find that among this unrecognizable fragments a piece of eternity persists.
The remaining fragments evoke meaning, sensory experiences that have been transformed by time, situation, and consequent memories. Memory is always in a constant state of change, complex and fragile, possessing an ethereal quality
Textures and surfaces found in the human landscape: architecture, ancient buildings, derelict houses and castles which have been subjected to erosion over the years offer visual and tactile richness as well as the intrigue they offer, secrets they hide, memories and glimpses to a forgotten world. My work offers blank pages to invite curiosity within these structures, personal secrets, feelings, fragility, hopes and dreams...”
