ARTIST STATEMENT 


ITA

La mia pratica artistica prende forma dalle intuizioni estetiche suscitate dal paesaggio e le sue istanze, e si articola in una serie di distillazioni immaginifiche del paesaggio stesso, all’irrealizzabile ricerca dell’arcaico insito nelle fenditure del contemporaneo. 

Questa vertigine genera reminiscenze archetipiche, e porta lo spettatore a riflettere sull’altrove, la distanza e ciò che è destinato ad essere distante. 

Attualmente la mia ricerca si concetra sul paesaggio italiano come spazio estetico, luogo di immaginari antichi e nuovi che, ponendosi in rapporto dialettico tra loro, configurano una narrazione visiva altra, incentrata sulle forze telluriche che lo animano.

My artistic practice takes shape from aesthetic intuitions aroused by a certain landscape and its instances, and articulates in a series of decompositions, better say imagistic distillations, of the landscape itself. 

This vertigo generates archetypal memories in eyes and mind, and leads the viewer to reflect on the gaze, the distance and what is destined to be distant.

Currently my research is conceived on the Italian landscape as an aesthetic space, a place of old and new imaginaries that, placing themselves in dialectical relationship with each other, configure a visual narration, focused on the telluric forces that animate it.
