2019 Parking 24x32cm tecnica mista su carta

Monday 31st August 2020 – Lines

I took the photo you see below the painting while I was cycling in Milan and I was surprised by observing some workers who were preparing the lines to paint the road signs. As you can see, there are all the lines drawn with scotch tape and I thought back to the series of works I did on the Alfa Romeo parking lots. I was struck by this comparison between lived reality and work of art, which makes what I […]

2013 Tangenziale tecnica mista su carta

Monday 3rd August 2020 – Road

By the end of this week we are finally leaving for the holidays, and this work well represents my struggle to get out of the city … I created this paper in 2013, for a wedding.

I find my brother’s journey, its history, very represented in this work on the parking lot. A great American artist, William Congdon, said that “authentic art opens a wound, it […]

2014 Alluciato 180x240cm olio su tela

Monday 19th November 2018 – Alluciato

In this painting of 2014 I portrayed the state road that leads from Palermo to Agrigento, in Sicily. It is a large painting 180x240cm, and is titled “Alluciato”, a Sicilian word meaning “dazzled by light”. 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 […]
