Henri Matisse once said “Do I believe in God? Yes, when I work. When I am submissive and modest, I feel myself to be greatly helped by someone who causes me to do things that exceed my capabilities.”
Do I believe in God? Yes, if I believe that he is the creator and he makes possible games of colour in which I actively take part and, as a result, I bring happiness to many people.
My favourite subjects of painting are inspired by nature. My paintings reflect my interaction with nature throughout my life, beginning with my childhood years.
I am possessed by a creative virility impossible to stop. I work with impasto by treating it as the primordial matter from which I create my world. The use of movement and texture reflect my state of mind in that moment.
My work is a fruit of reverie than of direct observation of the visible universe. I am free from classical ways of representation.
My favourite themes, approached in an expressionist manner, sometimes having Van Gogh-ish influences, are my great openings: the sky, the sea, the plains. On the large surfaces I paint on any visual chromatic miracle comes true, any composition becomes possible. But the only “characters” that dwell in my frames, without shapes, are the natural elements: flowers, trees, grass, the link between earth and sky.
