2019 Parking I 24x32cm tecnica mista su carta

Monday 27th July 2020 – Parking

This weekend I went to visit my brother and his partner, who is pregnant. We stayed with them, who live in a small town near Vicenza, above an ancient distillery. It always strikes me how life truly is a continuous surprise, like a continuous line that never stops moving forward.

The rose tip in the background shows a glimmer of light, and the white signs of the road is as if they were accompanying us. In the distance you can see the lights of the cars that follow one after the other with some touches of red, following the movement to which the whole work tends. Good start of 2018 at all, […]
