Through my practice I look for a connection to the world in a spiritual and metaphysical way, with many and different dimensions.
I’m interested in the non-visible sides of reality, that I try to represent through a process of time and parts, memories and intuitions,
unconsciousness and revelations, fragments and recompositions. I search for the pieces broken by the passing of time, in order to reassemble

them not in the old way, but in a new hypothesis of reality. My background as an architect has led me to experiment and mix different languages,
to be interested in the creative process as a design phase made by different dimensions, both meditative and spatial: all my work is a sort of meditation, where time and space are both the working instruments and the investigated objects. It’s about accepting the caos, the unseen, 
the unpredictable, time as a flow and a circle, space as a projection of self, being alive as a ‘here and now’.
