Descrizione Opera / Biografia

It is a lost helmet, which at some point, when there were still wars, was ”adorned” by the head of a young man, sacrificed here for something that has been forgotten...Nature takes the helmet to devour it..../ Against all wars ever made…
I create from the subconscious, I work mainly in the field of graphics - hand drawing, printmaking and ”textile graphics” - and move between the abstract - bound to natural forms - and the living representational. I draw, cut into wood and linoleum plates, print, stamp, paint over, photograph and sew, sometimes all at once... In the process, figures (or
”thoughts”) often emerge, ”uncover” and free themselves from various meshes...and become what constitutes their living core.
