Mirroring city 59x41 cm 2019

Mirroring city 59x41 cm 2019

"Venice" is a painting made on a transparent, fluorescent orange plexiglass panel, mounted on a light panel which is covered with a thin layer of two way mirror foil. Mirroring city can be viewed at daylight without the backlight on and at night with the light panel switched on, giving two different kind of perceptions of the city of Venice and especially its water that goes from opaque to illuminated as if there is life beneath it. In fact, the water represents the fluidity of life.

40 x 60 cm. Acrylic on magnets on iron board. 2018. The title comes Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll, p. 48: 'Who are YOU?' said the Caterpillar. This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, 'I--I hardly know, sir, just at present -- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, (...) 'What do you mean by that?' said the Caterpillar sternly. 'Explain yourself! ''I can't explain MYSELF, I'm afraid, sir, because I'm not myself"

Cosmopolis, 50x25 cm 2018

Cosmopolis, 50x25 cm 2018

It is a painting on plexiglass about a fragment of Amsterdam, viewed from above, as from a drone. Furnished with a light panel at the rear, Cosmopolis can be viewed at daylight without backlight and at night, by switching on the blue light panel. This changes the appearance completely, the windows of the buildings and the river shine of blue light when the light is on and the buildings turn into black silhouettes. Life is represented by the lighting in which people's stories take place

We are such stuff as dreams are made

We are such stuff as dreams are made

25 x 50 cm Acrylic on copper Engraving I wanted to explore the possibility of using different surfaces for different materials in order to convey different meanings. The water in itself is the metallic surface upon which the face is captured before their final submersion (or emersion?) The title comes from the Tempest by Shakespeare. From the words of Prospero, in the famous passage: we are such stuff as dreams are made on..." Winner of the London-Kyoto FAPDA Award 2019, category "art print"

Unborn Baby (SOLD) 2017

Unborn Baby (SOLD) 2017

It is a unique artwork designed to be seen in two different ways: the painting alone shows the real colours painted on black acrylic glass. The artwork when covered by a red fluorescent plexiglass plate, reveals another reality. It is like the experience of pregnancy in our technological age: the monochromatic image reflects the vision of the foetus inside the mother's womb through the ultrasound, the painted version reflects more the three-dimensional reality, possible with modern scanning.

Woman reading (SOLD)

Acrylic painting on black Plexiglas, 44 cm x 84 cm, 2016 (covered by transparent Plexiglas) The primary source of inspiration for this portrait (my own portrait…) is Gerhard Richter’s "Woman Reading", but here the technique enhances the meaning of the artwork:  Richter is the painter of the Polaroid era, my goal was to represent the era, my goal was to represent the era of the digital revolution and how that impacts our life, not only as readers but also in the sense of our perception

Acrylic painting on black Plexiglas, 40 cm x 65 cm, 2017 (covered by fluorescent blue Plexiglas) The jellyfish, the scorpion and the mouse - animals that are naturally fluorescent or fluorescent through genetic engineering - are hand painted.
