1. What’s your type of art? The main genre and typology? And how did you get into it? How did you learn it and refined it?
My artistic research stems from the interest in observing people and things that are shown to me.
The study of this has almost always developed through figurative research of the body, especially the female one, even if in recent years I have also developed a more abstract approach. It can be said that since I was a child I have had an interest in everything related to the art world and I began to approach drawing by attending courses for children until I chose to direct my studies in the field of art by attending the V. Cardarelli Artistic High School in La Spezia and finally the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan where I obtained the II Level diploma in painting in 2021. The Academy of Fine Arts allowed me to have a preparation theoretical and to develop my artistic research in parallel and right here I had the opportunity to develop research on the body during the nude lessons.
2. When did you realize you were and artist? What’s your education and background? Did you have interesting and related experiences or did you start from scratch and you are a self- taught artist? Describe it.
I have always had a marked interest in art since I was a child and this led me to direct all my studies in this field. I started attending amateur courses from an early age and then, when I had the opportunity through school, I specialized in artistic studies by attending the V. Cardarelli Artistic High School in La Spezia and finally the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan. I think there wasn't a particular moment in which I realized I was an artist but rather I believe that the whole journey I've done has been of fundamental importance in developing my artistic research. Certainly of fundamental importance was the course in the Academy as it allowed me to frequent environments linked to the world of contemporary art, to meet many people and to confront myself with being also creating collaborations.
3. Someone said: doctors cure people and engineers build houses, artists don’t. Do you think art is useful? Had it been? Will it be? And where do you consider yourself positioned in this? is there any role of art nowadays?
Yes, it's true that doctors cure people, engineers build houses but I think it's not true that artists do nothing. I believe that every artist is important and can be listened to in order to understand his vision of the world and of things.
In the art world many artists have encountered the same themes but I don't think any topic has ever exhausted itself since everyone adopts their own approach and the eyes that look or the ears that listen are always different.
4. As an emergent artist, do you think you developped or acheived a style/ Savoir Faire? If so, describe it please. If not, are you trying to find it?
For the art world we are considered young artists but in reality I am twenty-eight years old and I have completed my studies and I think I have reached a point where my artistic research, from a stylistic point of view, is now stabilized. Certainly the study and personal research never end. Currently from a stylistic point of view my artistic research develops in parallel between a figurative research through drawing and a research that moves towards the abstract through photography.
5. What’s your environment? It can be family, relationship, school, work, etc. Describe your personal space, studio, room, creative space where you actually think and create.
For a year now I have returned to my hometown, in Liguria, after spending six years in Milan. Both places have influenced my research indeed, I really believe that the differences of these have made the research develop more around people and in particular their bodies.
The contrast between these two different spaces has given rise to the overlapping of the bodies. The attention is paid to the lines that determine the shapes of the body but also to those spaces that are created between the overlapping bodies. I believe that frequenting environments and people with different characteristics is the most suitable place for me to reflect and create.
6 - Do you think young artists needs a support like the platform ÆMERGENT? And how this must be done in order to make you develop your own experience as professional?
I think young artists need opportunities to get their art out there and the ÆMERGENT platform promises that.
I think it is of fundamental importance to build a professional relationship both between the artist and the platform and between the artist and the art market, even if we are dealing with young artists. I think this is a good basis for making one's art known. Furthermore, I think the platforms can be an opportunity for the artists themselves to get to know other young artists.
7. What are you actually working on? Future projects?
I am currently carrying on the photographic project "Dal Corpo" started in 2020 consisting of a series of black and white photographs. A project in which attention is paid to the female body and its forms, forms of bodies which overlapping each other and with the surrounding space create fluid spaces. At the same time, the "Dal Nero" series continues, which concerns the more figurative part of the research. I build material for future exhibitions.
8. To end this interview, choose your favorite work and talk about it. Can be the best on to describe you, your sensibility and methodology. The flagship one.
I don't think I can express a preference for one work over another or think that one can best represent me because I believe that every work I make reflects the moment, the mood and the intention of the time in which has been accomplished. I certainly believe that the latest works, that of the "Dal Nero" series, can demonstrate one of the points achieved in artistic research and therefore best represent my current idea of bodies within a space. The graphite lines that delimit the contours of bodies intersect each other on an opaque aluminum surface and through the light, portions of bodies appear and disappear and merge with the surrounding environment, giving life to other shapes and spaces.
