CUTTING OF POLAROIDS
Looking for a personal expressive language, the necessity arises of deconstructing and reassembling reality based on a personal point of view, starting point the revisitation of famous works of art.
KING WARHOL AND POP ART
Highly influenced by Pop Art, studied at school and then abandoned, picked up again as a release vent and source of inspiration. From here a study of graphic design and the planning of new ideas of space.
Polaroids become the means to transmitting a message, helped here by paper support, a Moleskine page. This technique will be picked up again in later works.
POP ART REVISITED
Always present in my work projects is the revisitation of famous works of art, especially Pop Art. Polaroid Butcher Shop is a personal homage to Roy Lichtenstein's famous work of art.
Deconstruction and reassembling of original photographs to try and expand the visual field.Cutting the photograph allows to go beyond the finite world inspiring new and different meanings. Urban photography is studied further in particular architectonical elements which are deconstructed and reassembled to create new shapes.

'Heaven' with Heaven a new series of projects start in which typed messages merge with images in a totally chemical process: the typed message is impressed photographically in the centre of the picture, deliberately evanescent.
A series of 4 compositions of Trieste's Cattinara Hospital. Urban photography is studied further in particular architectonical elements which are deconstructed and reassembled to create new shapes.
New experimentation with new mediums, in this case the message is no longer impressed photographically but directly on the polaroid, on the picture ; the photographic frame becomes the support.

Irregularity becomes an opportunity to explore fragments of an elusive reality, a silent hymn to the here and now. At the same time the choice of imperfect frames crystallized in the enigmatic beauty of its compositions, make the subjects [flowers and butterflies] an echo of life, death and time, inspiring other points of view.
A new project, online soon.
