Monday 3rd December 2018 – Melancholy

This Monday I present you a 2016 paper, depicting a green stretch of Irieland overlooking the ocean. To create movement in the expanse and bring out the shine of the green lawn I used tempera and oil pastels. The transparency of the water finds its maximum point in the central part of the work, where it appears as a breath of wind. I titled this opera “Melancholy” because it speaks of a beautiful memory, and a lived moment that was […]

2018 Scogliere 52,5x38,5cm olio su tela

Monday 26th November 2018 – Cliffs

In this paintingabout the Irish cliffs of Moher I have confined to the right side the rocks that stand out on the ocean and I gave space to the colors of the water that gradation on gradation gives life and depth to the work.

I was almost blinded by the brightness of the Sicilian sun and I tried to make the intensity in the almost white reflections of light in the central part of the road before the curve. A flash of light as winter is coming! Happy monday […]

2018 Rimini 52,5x115,5cm trittico olio su tela

Monday 12th November 2018 – Rimini

Last week in Bologna started the project “Tosca sposa l’arte“, and the day of the opening came also a small group of people from Bagnacavallo, to whom I wanted to present myself starting from my origins and the reason that pushed me to take the path of art. At one point, one of them asked me “Why do you use colors so vivid?” I replied that for me using vivid colors is a way of looking at things with wonder […]
