Instinctual and gestural semi abstract work. Here natural elements are submerged by a visual representation of their energies. A fire-like energic burst explodes and invade what we can hint is a corner of a room. On the upper right corner of the painting, the sentence: “ Laudato si, mi Signore, per sora nostra matre Terra, la quale ne sustenta et governa”, part of the “Canticle of the Sun” written by St. Francis of Assisi, the can be translated as: “ Praised be You, my Lord, through Sister Mother Earth, who sustains us and governs us”. The words of St. Francis have brought to my mind by the jute canvas, that reminds the raw fabric of Francis’ tunic.
