I was born in Naples (ItalyNaples) and now I live in Rome the city that I set off from and the city I go back to. I’m involved in photography since the late seventies years gradually supporting the need for deeper search for a language to identify with.
My point of view is influenced by my painterly vision of a place, which I transform into a photograph. This interpretation derives from my personal study of the modern tradition of the abstract-figurative “-isms” typical of the early twentieth-century avant-garde movements in the arts.
Geometry is certainly an important aspect of my research.
“Forms and trace elements are repeated with an attention to mathematics and music.The composition is arranged in a pattern that produces harmony and refers to a symphonic score of lights and figures interspersed with fragments of stories surprised from analytical look and similar to choreographies”. (S.Petronici)
I have exhibited in several galleries in Rome, Milan, Venice, Florence, Lecce, Naples, Amsterdam, Paris, London, New York, Philadelphia and Berlin.
The artwork Travellers # 1 is present in the collections of the Philadelphia University of the Arts and of the France Public Library.
