amo la vita.
The series “Amo la vita” celebrates my deep admiration and love for all forms in which life expresses itself: being those persons, animals, objects, or nature. I love life in its disarming contradictions, moments of shadow and moments of light, flashes of exuberant joy and deepest despair. Life expresses itself through a movement of shapes and colours, like in a dance. Just think of the view from above of a crowd swaying in the streets of a big city, or the movements of hordes of animals in the savannah.
As in everyday reality, life is full of sharp contrasts. Light and dark. So, my painting are filled with patches of light and patches of darkness; elements that create patterns and elements that disrupt the rhythm; moments that are clear and well defined and moments that are fuzzy and confused. I am fascinated by the coexistence of deep contrasts.
In the footsteps of the first abstract painters of the early XX’s century, I adopt a minimalistic and geometrical abstract representation where reality is reduced to coloured shapes on coloured backgrounds, thus inviting the viewers to use their imagination, grasp the movement, and make room for their own personal interpretation.
