I have been working in this studio since 2004. Over time I changed rooms or walls to hang canvases and paint; I like to think of it as a “fluid” space that adapts to the creative needs of the moment.
Then there is the London studio, which is mainly the place where I make engraving: there is the press, the tanks with acids, the inks, the paper… in short, everything you need to print!
Over the years my aesthetic research has changed radically: I started from an almost hyper-realistic type of figuration to arrive today at an abstraction in which the use of language is inserted. I consider my year of “turning point” 2007, when I focused on the way forward. It was when I truly understood that for me color, shape, design and words have the same importance in the space of the canvas. They are different means of communicating and what interests me about words is their evocative power. I always say that in my works, in my paintings, I am not interested in giving answers, but rather in asking questions.
