(Longing for the tissues of the sky)
My artistic practice (multidisciplinary painting, collages, installations) focuses primarily on a reflection on the relationship between man and nature, between art and nature, and it arises from a deep need to give meaning to everything around me and at the same time I am satisfied. Pierce the veil of appearances, always go beyond a poetic exercise, and finally try to get to the essence of things, that’s what moves me.
In this exhibition I show a series of paintings inspired on a poem by William Butler Yeats, “He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven”, which has acted as a catalyst for all these above mentioned concerns. My painting of cosmological roots has already found a special echo, first in the evocation of both physical and metaphysical spaces, then the figure of the poet as an intermediary between heaven and earth.
You could say that Heaven opens a fertile connection that will bear fruit and will allow me to further deepen into my personal and artistic search.
If I had the sky embroidered fabrics, wrought with light gold and silver, the blue and the cloudy and the dark cloths of night and day and I would extend the half-light fabrics at your feet: but I, being poor, I have only my dreams, I have spread my dreams at your feet, tread softly because you tread my dreams WBYeats
