HUMANITY AND MATTER

I just make sense of different worlds

My imaginative faculty results from different elements handed down over to me from people living in distant times and places: the clay loom Appenines of Italy, the extinct populations and the survived cultures of the Andes, the mysterious arts of Africa, and the global world that mixes any kind of experience in a virtual circulatory system, in the mass media and on board low-cost flights.

When I deal with mineral materials and the heat that gives them a consistence, or when, with my camera, I get lights and shadows to coagulate and then move, I don’t purport to create anything new: I just look for the forms through which my mixed-race forefathers in whose blood Europe, Africa and America got mixed,expressed themselves.
