I am a painter and visual artist. I make highly realistic paintings in oil on canvas, usually representing two main narrative trends: portraits and details of nature. Even if apparently so far apart, the subjects allude to the main theme of iconic and symbolic images evoking the complexity of reality around us. The representation of isolated faces or close-up of little turfs of grass, both reflect on the relations between elements of our experience, pointing out how everything may contain a poetical intimate aspect and a subtle connection with art history.
