Synopsis of the show CAMPFIRE - dove comincia l'incendio
Through painting I am reaching for the coincidence of form and matter. I developed several techniques that allow me to retrieve natural patterns and impress them in the very material of the artwork. It's a process of fossilization of real elements in painting, which expands becoming object and space.
The spontaneous organization of matter reveals the deep architecture of space-time fabric; the emergence of golden formal harmonies betrays an order that harbours the possibility of chaos.
Natural forms interact with the consciousness in unexpected ways, which inform a proliferation of meanings, associations and correspondences that couldn't happen otherwise.
My objects, familiar and alien, trigger an uncanny synaesthesia between tactile and visual perceptions: the ambiguity of image and material resolves into a dynamic process of constant revolution.
