2021 Attracchi 160x50cm olio su tela

Monday 23rd August 2021 – Moorings

In these two moorings all the tension is in the middle part, in the strong movements of the ropes and in the chromatic contrasts between the wood of the poles and the water. From the center, the tension descends downward, sinking downward as if it is an abyss. It is a dramatic picture, and the presence of the colour purple goes well with this feeling. I can’t say that I enjoy it when I paint dramatic pictures, but I think […]

Monday 28th June 2021 – Moorings

My relationship with the canvas is always very dynamic: sometimes I feel that the rhythm while I’m painting is a bit bland and that’s where I feel the urge to get to a point.

Monday 25th January 2021 – Moorings

The port is my favourite place: walking far and wide and seeing the reflections of the ropes in the water is a sensation that always arouses so much tranquility. In this painting the boats are stationary, everything is mirrored because the water is very clear and my eyes always fall there, in those physical strings that come towards me. Their line breaks that apparent calm and creates a feeling of expectation, of something that is about to happen in that […]
