Biography

" I have always used materials like metals, glass, mirrors and neon lights, for installation art works sometimes of large dimensions. The techniques used involve working with glass and neon or brass tubes and require the input of specialised craftsmen who are able to produce high quality products. I have always tried to create art works with a strong visual impact, which can stimulate observers to reflect on visual quality and lead them to meditate deeply on the form observed. My art work is mainly based on the centrality of the principle of visual perspective typical of the Italian Renaissance, based on the concept of spaciality, which was taken up in the Baroque period and later by the Futurists, and has reached levels of excellence in the present day with works such as those of Lucio Fontana. Many of my works have been created in relation to the perspective and history of the exposition site, in an attempt to create the perfect equilibrium between the work and the space ".
