The works presented are part of the small size 54/41 cm Finestre series, and there is also a large size 150/100 cm series in progress. They are paper sculptures or space drawings, perforated with the needle.
Through perforation, the opaque object becomes translucent and projects a graphism on the wall like a constellation of dots.
The working process is a perforation 'ritual'. Like religious rituals, it involves disciplined repetitiveness on the axis that favors the reunion between man and God, which gives the artworks a profoundly spiritual character.
Each artwork is a Finestra that has its own being and represents the course of a lifetime. Because each of us is like a Window, unchangeable but always becoming, constantly accumulating. We are the window through which two worlds can be seen, communicate and entered.
Each point is a meaning, and the punctual graphism opens up a universe of connotations. From the atomicity of our being to the events and decisions that determinates our path of life, we are an accumulation of points, signs and traces left in time.
The artworks take on the meaning of memory, of accumulation, of the traces left temporally, of life, balance, and ultimately of being. They impose a narrow chromatic of gray shades with direct reference to the actions of men on the scale of sacred values, which rarely attain the purity of the white or the mystery of the black.
They also encompass to a large extent the self. They is an existential prolongation, an extension of my intimacy and preoccupations, where empathy plays an important part. There are common points and elements binding us. And our beings communicate and reverberate, in one way or another, because in the end we are each a point in the constellation of this world.
