Descrizione del lavoro

What I try to achieve with my art is to create an intimate dialogue between me, the observer and the subject. In these years I developed a kind of "sensorial method" that looks at the subject as something with a precisely language and essence. My focus is to capture this observed sensation and develop it into painting with different series and concepts. Now I'm working on a project that relates common situations to historical work of art, "The Raft of Bel Paese" is part of this new series. As I started to take photos, I remained really impressed about how normalcy can be so connected with historical work of art. Interact with history of art can open an infinity of observation possibilities. You can take your curiosity for composition, structural connections/meaning, standard of beauty, color use and techniques and scrutinize it, giving your own contemporary version. With this work I find the interest to look everyday situations as images that comes from the past, to give us a new point of view for life. Ordinary things as objets d'art. Same situations, different customs and attitude, you can compare each other to look their differences at the passage of time. As most of the situations in the past were turned into religion,I take in this moment history of art as something "religious" that can give us a better view of earthly things. THE RAFT OF BEL PAESE: The Raft of Bel Paese is part of the series described above. A friend of mine took this photo during a stage performance (it was really accidental as all the photos I'm taking for my project) and when I saw it, was clear for me that the structure and the theatral intention in the photo represent a strong relation with the magnificent paint of Théodore Géricault " The Raft of the Medusa". But not just the structure of Géricault's paint captured my attention,even his political/social meaning. Gericault wanted to underline the decadence of the France and as I first saw the photo, I realized that it could be a perfect representation of the current Italian situation. This is why I choose to work on it, the "Bel Paese" is not long a place of "art and beauty", it is just a wonderful place submerged by a destructive political situation. I don't use to work on political issues and even this time, I'm far to do it, I just wanted to give a little cause of reflection to the user, approaching historical themes and again history of art as something really near our culture. All the works of the series are visible in my website:
