Artist’s statement


As a young painter living amidst the rich artistic heritage of Florence, my passion lies in the creation of figurative oil paintings that delve into the depths of human emotions. Through my art, I strive to capture the raw essence of our shared human experience, offering a glimpse into the intricate tapestry of emotions that shape our lives.

Drawing inspiration from the beauty and complexity of the human psyche, my work seeks to unravel the subtleties and nuances of emotions that often go unnoticed or unexpressed. I believe that emotions are the truest expressions of our inner selves, acting as windows into our thoughts, hopes, fears, and vulnerabilities.

My artistic process begins by immersing myself in the stories and experiences of individuals around me. I observe the hidden layers of emotions that manifest in their expressions, gestures, and body language. Through meticulous observation and an acute sensitivity to the human condition, I bring these emotions to life on canvas, capturing the essence of the fleeting moments that define our lives.

My choice of oil as a medium allows me to layer colors and textures, giving depth and richness to my paintings. The interplay of light and shadow, the delicate brushstrokes, and the subtle variations in tone and hue serve to evoke an emotional response in the viewer. Each stroke is a deliberate exploration, a delicate dance between technique and intuition, as I seek to convey the complexities of the human experience.

In a world that often overlooks the power of emotions, my artwork aims to create a space for contemplation, empathy, and connection. By shining a light on the universal language of emotions, I hope to foster dialogue, inspire introspection, and bridge the gaps between individuals, cultures, and generations.

Through my artistic vision, I aspire to elicit a profound emotional response from the viewer, sparking a dialogue that transcends language and cultural barriers. It is my belief that art has the power to ignite change, challenge perspectives, and evoke a sense of shared humanity.
