IMAGERY OF REFLECTIVE SURFACESLooking in the mirror is an age-old innate gesture, an intimate moment which conveys getting ready before making the scene, whether on stage or in society. Surrounded by a familiar setting, when we look in the mirror we make up the look we want to show.
The Mirror is a simple object found in all cultures, unchanged over time yet rich in contents as well as symbolically and emotionally charged. It refers to our cultural identity, the focus on imagination in both industry and society, our ethics and responsibility in making our own future as we wish it to be. It is also a Made-in-Italy concept statement through Fashion and Design, a reflective tool for true reflection on beauty, Art and creativeness, essential qualities to make a better future, thus becoming an ideal instrument to overcome limits and cultural boundaries which dry up human relationships.
We are all the same in front of a mirror, driven towards an eerie unsubstantial dimension suspended between dream and reality, a metaphor of contemporary society confronted with its own wishes and seeking the new meaning of life.
MIRROR-FINISH ARTWORKS“...The mirrored surfaces of my works are space-time cracks where the soul of objects becomes a message. Beyond their tangible function, they are reflections about modernity, unfinished thoughts to be completed by finding our own meaning…”
“…to the extreme, the crack allows the environment to coexist with our inner dimension at a glance. A fourth dimension where the stillness of signs is opposed to the ever-moving world, where the universal value of concepts survives the indifference of time going by...”
“... just like memory, that matches words and concepts with faces, my portraits imbue faces with the power of ideas and the results achieved by the subjects, conveying their full emotions ...”
LIGHT SCULPTURES"...through light, folds are the embodiment of change, movement, life itself. They collect stories, experiences and events that make up reality as we know it. A metaphor of crises turning into opportunities, unveiling the many facets of reality, which appears as one, but is actually manifold".
"...They use the modern language of new digital technologies and the Net to reveal the emotional instability of contemporary society... they represent the search for our identity and place in the world!...”
"...By describing individuals and objects via the folds of life running through them, they become both unique and iconic, an expression of a precise construction of the self, as we are before a mirror, where we take it upon ourselves to become protagonists… connected by our awareness that our happiness does not rely on events, yet our reaction to them!"
