Portfolio – Body


Perhaps the first theme of my pictorial research, that still takes the majority of my time, is the representation of the body: the body that defines my boundaries and without which I couldn’t paint.

The male body, that I inhabit, is the one I painted: an anti-heroic body, the body of a simple man, with its imperfections and its uniqueness.

Some paintings were created by a bodily impulse, almost translating the movement of dance into painting.

The body is the first place of our life, beautiful in its every form and age.

The body is also contended for, and loved, it is the object where one can exercise power, the first component of the social dimension.
