Based in: BARI
I was born in Bari, capital of the Apulia region in the south of Italy.
I’m a self-taught multidisciplinary artist, with a background of architectural interior designer.
All my works go beyond the purely phenomenal worldly character of expression.
They are the product of an individual research that I have been carrying out for more than twenty years, where the direct intuition of the thing itself, that is of the essence, is my only path.
Like a hollow bamboo inside, I make space inside myself to listen to what resounds without sound overwhelming the voice of the din, to no longer visit but be visited, especially by silence …
Quoting Carlo Sini on Derrida: “we cannot say what we have to say because it means that every saying is already a writing, it is already a writing that is originally silent, that has no archè, has no beginning; it is rooted in not being able, not wanting, not having to say ".
I am interested in the halo of the image, in the impermanence of the structure.
