About

The dynamics of objects, the expression of energy, the dialogue established between the real and the virtual are my favourite topics. Not coincidentally the glass sculpture represented a starting point of the artistic experiments, it was a “game” of forms, a method of knowledge, of facing the space. The glass transparency provided a certain immateriality by emphasizing the energy features, of reflexion and rendering the light in abstract type of works. From glass immateriality there was only one step away towards digital, figurative art, to 3D graphics in which I found a personal space of expression.

 

In the 3D scenes, I create objects or characters similarly to sculptors, I put them into light to obtain in the end expressive works that I print on canvas.
