LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
I'm a printmaker (and artist) native of the north of Italy who is very experimental and explorative. I try to go beyond the standard and possibly bent certain rules i have acquired when learning art at the School of Art of Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana, Usa (2012-2017). A crucial element of my work is the attention on texture. Texture is very important to create the right context to my subjects and to add or underline the meaning of my subjects and narrative. I'm recently working at finding a plausible connection and physical interaction between printmaking and sculpture. I’m very interested in graphic design and pure forms exalting simplicity and understatement. The more images and videos become complex and manipulated by a more democratic technology and a collective need to be evermore stupefied the more I strive for simplicity and a return to bare essentials. Yet simplicity is often the result of a layered complexity. My art finds its creation within this paradox. Recently, I’m working on a series of sculptures built and molded with hand printed paper that reflect my minimalistic approach to art and at once texture reigns as the fundamental and most determining factor.
During this year my work has been selected in juried shows in San Francisco, New Mexico (currently showing at Remarque/New Grounds printshop in Albuquerque, Soho Photogallery in New York, The Holy Art in London. Another exhibition happened in Melbourne, Australia (March 2020; to raise funds for climate catastrophes in Venice and Australia) has my prints featured on the Print Council of Australia with the title Aqua Poetica, fall issue 2020. Another publication, the Mid America Print Council, will have my sculptural new work featured in the January 2021 issue.
Another two keys indispensable to my creativity are nature contemplation and electronic music.
