Monday 28th December 2020 – Paintings of the year

We are about to say goodbye to this year 2020, a year so intense and dramatic, which has literally changed our lives. I was happy to have lived it, to have been there, to have fought with spatula and brushes, to have given myself in the many moments of sharing, such as the social live during the first lock down, the Backup exhibition and the many encounters born in the most surprising forms.

This weekend I spent two days in Rimini with some friends who wanted to see my BACKUP exhibition with me, at Zamagni Arte. It was a really beautiful and very interesting moment because I realized even more the relevance of these works with these surreal hours in which everything seems to collapse. Everything jumps, what remains? The connections with the people who love me, the human relationships that help me to be stable, to stay in front of the things […]
