Artist Statement

My subject matter addresses the space in cityscapes seeking to expose vital concerns of the human existence such as solitude, the existential distress caused by the time passing, the underlying concept of death, emptiness and absence. In my artwork, the viewer becomes the main character, the only point of view able to feel solitude, usually absorbed in an urban overcrowded space. It is about transmitting the idea that we can feel totally alone in a city, aliened by everything, empty and far from any hint of humanity, despite living continually surrounded by people and stimuli. It is something that constantly exists around us, and most of the time we ignore it because it happens to others. It is a purely existential vision of reality.

As the author, I seek to catch the light as a meaningful supplier of human emotions. The contrast of light and shadow seeks to intensify those emotions that persistently affect us. A constant in my work is the reflection of water, coming to mark a duality between the real and the unreal, the objective being the reality that is presented and the subjective reflecting it, as the observer's own reality. The different architectural styles, together with the light, focus their attention on the emotions. My painting style is realistic, in some cases capturing a more objective representation of reality, in others capturing a subjective reality, through the gradual exploration of shades of the same colour, in others it is simply black and white and corresponding grey scale, giving the painting a photographic appearance.
