This work is inspired by the Diòscuri, Càstore and Pollùce, the two mythological twins sons of Leda who mated Zeus while he was in the form of a swan and had given birth to two eggs: from one of these eggs were born Pollùce and Elena di Troia, children actually of Zeus; from the other egg were born Càstore and Clitennestra, children of Leda's husband, Tindaro.
The Diòscuri are considered protectors of sailors during storms, and in this form they are represented in the painting, as lights that illuminate a stormy sea and indicate to the sailors the right direction.
The painting doesn't need any frame and it is ready to hang. It comes with an Authenticity certificate.
Based in: Milan
I was born in Varallo, an artistic town near the Italian Alps, but now live and work in Milan and have travelled extensively. This is also one of the basis for my work.
My art represents the beginning of a trip where I have been or would like to go. I don't know what I will find en route and by how much my painting will be modified along the path.
Perhaps at the end of the road I will have found something new from my subconscious or I will be deeply changed.
When I paint I feel extraordinarily free and with a deeper knowledge of myself. My paintings represent a personal diary with which I can open myself freely. Painting is healing for me.
I feel the physical need to be totally absorbed in the creative process, in the midst of my colours, surrounded by the paintings I love.
I used to paint with oils; now I use acrylics, enamels, pigments; usually on Italian stretched canvases, more rarely, on paper. I use brushes, knives, spray bottles, or I drip the colors. I appreciate also the wonderful technique of engraving.
My source of inspiration are often pictures that I've taken in my trips: natural or architectural landscapes; or images that I create in my fantasy.
I love to experiment creating textures and to see the harmony that springs from shapes and colors.
