Urban Landscape

“Titled” is a series of views of the city, in an attempt to investigate the urban reality in its more or less visible aspects. A reflection on the relationship between the myths that we created to explain to ourselves the world we live in and the way in which, from major events such as the first industrial revolution, mankind has lived and shaped the world.

Glimpses of the city, often plain, solid colors, I paint from photographs I took around the world. I don’t declare which city is depicted because I’m interested in what the most diverse cities have in common.

I paint and draw what I see. Whatever the medium, recycled paper or canvas, and the technique, acrylic, oil, markers, my reflection moves, surrounds, pierces the environment in which I live: the city. The urban landscape with its “fauna” and its continuous changes coming to my eyes to be registered, without second thoughts, through its artistic figure. The code is the same, changing only the means and the angle: on recycled paper I portray the metropolitan animal, on the canvases I depict geometries of modern architecture. In either case, what fascinates me are the points in common: Whether New York, Paris or Naples that doesn’t matter: I capture the deep sense of living the contemporary city. A reflection that was founded in 2006 in Philadelphia, where I started working at the Titled series, at which I am still working. In Titled (acrylic on paper and acrylic on canvas), contemporary architecture is the protagonist: I portray buildings, neighborhoods, streets inspired by sights of New York, Philadelphia, Rome, Naples …. The charm of the project lies in capturing the feeling, alienating and uplifting at the same time, that only the metropolis can give you: the feeling of being in that specific place, at the center of the world and in any place simultaneously. If with Titled I trace the “outline” of my reflection on the city, my works on paper help to deepen the concepts, analyzing them from different perspectives.

I inquire into the city because I believe it represents the will of human being, his way of thinking about himself and show himself to the others, it also represents the relations between people and things and relationships. Through my works I’d like to invite who look at them to complete the works by himself, with his/her intuition, his/her feelings about them.
