2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

My artistical path has brought me to investigate the written word and its relationship with the supporting material and the space in which it’s placed. Black capital letters, written in an anonymous, plain font, typified my artworks since long time, so as the ability to paint anichonic subjects, the gold, transparent and technologically impersonal materials. The archetypal purity of letter’s shapes, emphasizes – through my paintings’ surface – as physical essences that leak out of the black. Shapes of text conceptually emerge from our memory more then from the canvases. During last years the spatial definition of my works and their relations with an ancient thought characterized at the most. My last artworks limits have expanded beyond my previous path, toward different languages and cultures, through installations that combine our far-off memory with archetypal patterns analyzed while surfacing in sensible aspects of contemporary society.
