To give you a clearer picture of the visual aesthetic you are experiencing through my work, I think you should know about the first two loves of my life.
It started with Henri Matisse’s Red Interior: Still Life on a Blue Table, 1947. I love his radical use of colours and the intensity with which he used them, which is not unlike the ones we see in comic books today.
Jackson Pollock is another artist who captured my imagination. His surrealist approach to the exploration of his unconscious spoke volumes to me. When I saw an original piece of his in the George Pompidou Centre, tears welled up in my eyes.
The first validation I received as a professional fine art photographer was with my Metamorphosis Exhibition at the Statuto13 Gallery in Milan, in 2013. And the rest, as they say, is history.
My process is intuitive, and the artistic expression with which I approach photography is to spark a continuing dialogue between the artwork and the viewer. My work steers away from the stereotypical image capture as I seek to push the boundaries of photography both in-camera and in my editing processes.
I am an eternal optimist, and in light of the spirit behind the creation process, I hope the artwork will connect with you on a deeper level and uplift your spirits.
