STATEMENT

Interested in overcoming the idea of painting as a painting hanging on the wall and convinced of the strong bond between the paint and the other languages​​, by several years my research has focused on the creation of Ambienti, three-dimensional "spaces" in which the observer can enter.

The works "Progetti per Installazioni-Ambienti" are projects thought for future three-dimensional installations (AMBIENTI), in which the visitor is invited to discover from the inside the space so created. Each slide and cardboard is a different project for a future AMBIENTE. The Ambienti (realized with different materials and sometimes thought with solids on the floor or hung on the wall or suspended) are characterized by a direct connection with space and architecture and are a research on the language of art, full of various ways of expression: the color, the shape, the volume. The final installation becomes a crossable space by the visitor.

The intention is to create a direct communication between the work and the viewer.
