I have been working in this studio since 2004. Over time I changed rooms or walls to hang canvases and to 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 are 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 get to an abstraction level in which the use of language is inserted today. I consider 2007 my “turning point” year when I focused on the way forward. It was when I truly understood that for me colour, shape, design and words have the same importance on the canvas. They are different means of communication and what interests me about words is their evocative power. I always say that I am not interested in giving answers, but rather in asking questions in my works, in my paintings.
