In a certain moment of my artistic adventure, I felt the need to get closer to subjects to paint, neglecting the big picture to devote myself instead to detail. What interests me describe in this series of works is the perception of objects rather than the objects themselves; intangible details, colors unnoticeable if not zooming to the maximum the goal. It is, ultimately, of a backward procedure to achieve an abstract view of nature. Hence it arose the series of paintings entitled “Secret Garden”, the secret garden.
In my path, feeling the need to emphasize the matter of what I’m painting, I decided to use, contrary to my usual, different expressive mediums such as oil, wood, flax, ceramics that allow me to get that grain, the roughness in the surface can describe this my little inner world.
This research, this series of works marked an important point in my painting experience because it allowed me to stop and look inside myself to redefine the objectives and topics of my artistic adventure. Move from the general to the particular involved a completely different approach to my painting, abandoning the more figurative aspect in favor of a more gestural, expressionistic, and often calligraphy. Crossing the My Secret Garden continues my research of shapes, colors and textures. It ‘a path, above all interior, to discover myself and of my memories that manifest as fragments of things: flowers, leaves, twigs, branches, clear skies or stormy, meadows and deep woods. An enchanted garden where access in times of need when, tired of the noise of everyday life, you feel the need to alienate and fly higher.
