About Artist

In my work I employ etching, intaglio and lithography techniques.
I use natural materials such as stone, copper and wood because drawing onto these media has something almost ritual for me due to their plastic versatility and to their symbolic meaning.
In my prints I quote and recreate images from ancient illustrations, natural history manuals and maps.
Iconography, anthropology and distortion of reality are key to my research. I like using non-discursive knowledge to communicate concepts that everyone can grasp due to our collective subconscious.
I offer viewers forgotten narratives from the subconscious and the uncanny by exploiting mythology as an universal language.
My prints are opulent in detail, their many threads and lines allow viewers to different keys of lecture and interpretation, they offer freedom of fantasy.

 

Solo Exhibitions

My First solo exhibition was held as the result of my art residency in Florence NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM " LA SPECOLA" November, 2009.
Since then I exhibited solo in Wien Italian culture institute and , Studio 61 Gallery, Blackheath, 2013 and Westminster Reference Art Library in 2014.
