My art is derived from observing and experiencing the perplexity of natural processes - the interplay of physical and psychological phenomena. Over the years, I have tried to define my work. Although most of my work is non-representational, I am describing, mimicking or mirroring the seen and unseen workings of nature. It could be viewed as the "real world" abstracted through the lens of a kaleidoscope. In my work, matter is fractured and skewed in a disarray of visual experience.
I come from a myriad of influences stemming from my travels in Europe and North America. I emigrated from Italy to Canada in my childhood where I make London, Ontario my present home. My studies have taken me to Western University, University of Montreal, McGill University, Fanshawe College, and Beal Art. Visual art was my main focus, interspersed with languages and literature, psychology and art therapy instruction. I continue to be enthralled by reading diverse subjects on the experience of reality and its psychological impact.
Inspired by the unique and endless machinations of what appears to the visual sense, I am attempting to create a foil to describe the ephemerality of the physical world. Intricate designs, patterns and configurations are apparent to me. These fluid mysteries are what I try to depict - not what nature appears to be, but the awareness, the approximation of what it "looks and feels like" to come into existence.
In essence, I am peering into the "equations of life". I am not a scientist, but a visual artist spurring the imagination to see beyond appearances.
