Silence spaces in a suspended time, when man is completely absent. Through the use of bare essentials and a set of colors, the artist represents visions of changing territories. The idea to paint these places, however apparently unreal landscapes, cames from visions of unknown corners of the planet. The effect induced is a feeling of alienation and disorientation, as a theater suddenly dropped from his actors. The subtle and stark poetry is the soul of the vision and conceals a tragedy: the consequences of a permanent man exploitation of the earth.

The technique, the blending of painting and matter becomes the communicative medium through which the artist recreate on canvas the world’s environmental problems: color slides and emerges as rivers deposited among the ravines and valleys bringing out the image. Not just a pictorial virtuosity but also the memory of an event re-created through the action of physical agents: heat, chemicals, time and temperature.

The investigation on the landscape is the dominant theme of the artist’s work of art, addressed as loss of a collective good. Restless landscapes, visions of desolate places that feed of ‘”Unheimlichkeit”, defined by Freud and translated into disturbing that surfaces in each work space where the perception is not clear, the references are lost in an illusion of reality, every human activity is banned and a hostile nature takes over.
