ARTIST STATEMENT

Can art still connect to the emotions today?

The experience of the world cannot be understood through logic: in order to understand the relationship between the human being and the world around him it is necessary to give it a shape.

My surroundings and everyday life are always the starting point of my work, which is characterized by the contrast between opposites such as the human being and technology, modernity and tradition, ....

The human being, as well as a critical observation of modern society are essential parts of my work, which comes from an intense research of images and is often resulting in series.

The artworks are often made of simple materials such as cardboard, wrapping paper, old sheets of paper, wood, ropes as well as old magazines or books - often otherwise destined for disposal - as well as traditional techniques like oil painting or charcoal and new medium like video and audio.

Merging figurativism and conceptualism, the resulting pieces offer clues that lead the viewer back to himself. The visual clue does not want to be invasive: his apparent simplicity invites the viewer to add own meanings. The artwork can only be fully completed through its connection with the viewer.
