A short description of your work.
Describing my work has always been difficult to me. Sometimes I cannot even give a meaning to it. I fall back on an idea, on a whisper, something vital , so that I cannot stop working on it. Developping an idea it's a process that sometimes takes years. I work at home, in my studio, where I become familiar with materials, so that they can turn into element of my pieces; sometimes I work on the road, with things I find out. My research is a metaphor of life and a reflection on our times.
What inspires you?
When I was child, my grandfather brought me to artist's studios. I was attracted by drawings, by the mess of studios and by the way artists used the tools. Later on, remembering that moments, I understood that art would have been my way to communicate, to imagine fantastical worlds.
What are your aspirations?
My family, passed and present.
