"The impressionist track finds its expression in the representation of “En Plein Air”, filtered through my academic culture.
Exit the nineteenth-century ateliers, dark and dusty; it was a liberating moment aimed at the need to represent nature in its multiple expressions, no longer dedicated to portraiture or historical representation. The landscape was rediscovered as a pure inspirational element.
The natural element is fundamental in my project. The necessity to rediscover a nature never before represented in this way; air, light, wind, are symbols manifested through reflecting forms such as solar landscapes, fiberglass trees bent as proven by the wind and natural colours that refer to pointillism. The decomposed forms transform the sculptural material into a pictorial mass, arriving at a sort of visionary landscape. The organic volumes emptied, as if pierced by air, but at the same time solid and burdensome.
The resins are painted, the Murano glass exploded inside a tri-dimensionality becoming natural mineral joints, fantastic interpreters of pre-cubist forms. Cast brass, recycled resin, semi-precious stones; everything contributes to express a contemporaneity through the perfect historicity of a past period such as Impressionism".
