I have been always obsessed with the emblematic or iconic character of an image. I always try to relate to an essential question: If I die tomorrow, what would be the "testamentary" image I would leave to the public today? It is indeed a hard introspective exercise, but useful for the artist when she/he wants to get rid of the unnecessary details of her/his own thinking. One of the most relevant images I have made in recent years is the work entitled "Underground". This image eloquently expresses, for me at least, the psychological dichotomy of contemporary human, his growing ontological isolation despite technological interconnection: human as a continuous antithesis between thought and deed, between history and biography, between action and idleness, caught in the hedonism of his own social bubble with his "@-head" stuck in the "digital" (back)ground. Behind the main (and only) character I painted a warm atomic blast stating that human species has not yet given up its self-destructive potential. Let's hope that art will make us more aware of the harmony we have to reach together.
