Becoming Colour - tecnica mista su tela
This is one of my first works of the “Portraits” series. It shows not so much the subject’s amazement as my own, as if I am looking in the mirror. It is the amazement of the artist when he realizes he has shaped his vision in a way that satisfies him completely. In these first portraits I was deeply inspired by artists such as Kokoshka and De Stael. A balance and contrast between abstraction and representation, matter and spirit as well as a neat background and the subject’s vibrating texture characterize this painting as much as most of my artistic output.
