The key element of this solo show is the act of painting. The Italian artist himself claims that he is possessed by painting: “I move inside color, the process feels like an endless ritual, a rhythm and a dance which leads me to work like there’s no tomorrow, exhausted, I stop”. This act is a way of expressing all sentiments and unleash emotions through the use of color. For him painting becomes an erotic act, driven by the anxiety of communicating its own state of being there. Like there’s no tomorrow.
The show consists of big formats, painted books, fluctuating cellophanes and collages assembled by pieces of “waste”. The latter is displayed as, according to the artist, every element and everything within the process of painting is useful and necessary for its realization.
