The paradoxes ignite the imagination
What can imagine a witness of a scene where a person gives a "slap"
to his companion, pronouncing at the same time the word, "I love
The action (in any case inadmissible), connected to an
objectively incongruent sentence, (assuming that from the
voice's tone, we can't derive any indication for an evaluation
aid), prefigure for the observer an unsettling scenario, of
multiple and problematic implications.
The fact clearly inappropriate and reckless, wrapped of an
absurd connotation, encouraging the observer to find an urgent
and rational interpretation.
In conclusion a scenario where incoherent images and words are
connected, disorient the observer's perceptions, multiply and
complicate the understanding, in other words the paradoxes
ignite the imagination.
That said, I think the title that I associate to my paintings,
deliberately devoid of didactic character, contextualize the
same, that is, the title goes into a new multidimensional space
whose coordinates are made up of multiple implications of a
The title's words are intended to deliver to the images a
meaning that goes beyond their habitual use, allowing you to
discover unsuspected aspects.
An experiment in which open images, (albeit containing fragments
of reality and hierarchies figures) in a dialogue with the words,
offer to the observer various ideas to get a sense.
Concepts used as tools to combine knowledge's connections, not
to give a name to things, but to bring out residues unexplored,
opaque areas, ambiguities and attractive solutions.
This should permit at the observer to feel the artwork not as a
representation, but as an allusion, a laterality, a shadow of
life to stimulate attention and memory.
And also, understanding the artwork as a kind of organism, an
organized entity able to find nourishment from its surroundings
in order to survive and transforming it.
A place where the node breaks the linearity, giving space to the
tangle, to the rupture, to the imperfection and to the
A proposal that it isn't a story but that looks like a cry, an
uncomfortable gesture, a tear.
An artifice presenting complex geometrical shapes, so
unconventional, it demands the collaboration of the viewer /
reader, which are whispered questions to "force him" to think.
Forms, not domesticated by technical expertise and academic
ability, rough, enigmatic, thirsting for justice and, at times,
even of revenge, animated by a polysemic vibration, obstinately
refusing poetic, symbolic, dreamlike and magical references.
An ostentation of intense materiality, murky, a mix of strength
and vitality with a premonition to the tragedy, a sensuality
exhibition with a restless inspiration.
A constructed language with a syntax that is neither naive nor
intuitive, where a passionate rationality is placed at the
service to the strong human vision, to determine into the
observer an imaginative impulse that opposes to the arid
ratification of consumption and possession, that makes feeble
the critical thinking, turning off any possibility of future.
