2021 Fili 21x29,7cm tecnica mista su carta

Monday 12th April 2021 – Wires

When I start painting a subject in which I discover something interesting, I feel the urge to work a lot on it. To experiment you have to accept to make mistakes, to take risks, then among the many failed things, something is born for which I say: here is something beautiful, to be saved! And that’s how I proceed when I work. In this small work on paper I was very struck by the contrast between the blue of the […]

2021 Piazza 5 Giornate 30x30cm tecnica mista su carta

Monday 5th April 2021 – Piazza Cinque Giornate

2021 Duomo 30x60cm olio su tela

Monday 22nd March 2021 – Duomo

This view of the Duomo, through the chromatic intensity of the colors, gives a lot of vitality to the square. The tram wires overlook the central part of the painting, and the white marble of the Duomo facade brings out the crackling colors of cadmium yellows, violets and intense Prussian blues. The verticality of the Madonnina, which stands out and dominates the scene, amazes me in this work. I really hope this is the last moment of lockdown, so that […]
