2020 Duomo 80x80cm olio su tela

Monday 11th January 2021 – Milan Cathedral

Each painting has its own history and its own time of execution. In this painting about the Milan Cathedral, it took me a long time to come to a conclusion. In the lower part of the painting, there is the best part of me, because there are masses of color that collide with each other, created with very direct movements of the palette knife and with the color rendered liquid.

I give you this image which is […]

The love I have for the nature of water manifests itself inside that white lump near the reflection of the pole. For me the beauty of the things is always something physical and […]
