Project

- Il mare in una stanza - (Sea in a room)

A series of mixed-technique works tell the relationship of
love/destruction between Humanity and Nature.
The romantic vision of old sailors clashes with darkness
exploitation and pollution of the sea.
Human loneliness is crossed by shoals of fish, and while
the blue tides carry with them the memory of those who have lived the sea,
black oil invades it trapping everything it touches.
The above and below, sky and backdrop, united by the moon enclosed in a can.

The technique ranges from painting with acrylic to engraving, from
collage to the three-dimensional object.
The old photographs melt inside the brushstrokes, the
destruction becomes creation.
Tuna cans become a metaphor for our consumption,
we will leave only a memory.
The materials also recall the aquatic world:acetate sheets,
resin, and inks dissolve in composing one scenario
that stops the perpetual motion of the tides for an instant,
vehicle of diversity and contact between all works.
