Vision is a cycle of digital works, who start an oneiric, colorful journey from the mysterious rock’s shapes of the island of Capri through typical Italian heads of grain fields and hidden waterfalls. Starting from chromatically upgraded photos of abandoned places, he inserts a magical figuration that redeems the oblivion into which that specific place has sunk, which is the symbol of a more general re-discovery of a secret world of values. Classic statues, Historic gardens, baroque patrician villas, details of ancient arches or forgotten natural places are the ideal environment to bring to life these apparitions that, once manifest, tend to escape, to hide from the eyes of the beholder, leaving a question in the mind of spectators: ” Somebody will ask me – the Artist says – the meaning of my works, for example, a frog on the top of a green psychedelic disco ball held by the ancient statue of Atlantis: well, if he feels them beautiful, he has already found the meaning”. The theme of disguise and concealment is the basis of his poetry. His works are made following unconsciously the same rules of a poem or a dream: an ideal reality that cannot be fully revealed because it could vanish.
