What set you off as an artist?
In my opinion to become an artist for me is a natural process: Since when I was a child, I’ve felt the need to communicate in creative ways. After years, this need has increased more and more and so I decided to study art and photography at the University in Venice.
I think art (and in particular photography) is the best way to express ideas and messages through colours, shapes and objects. What set me off as an artist is the possibility of leaving a mark with a positive message, talking about topics that I think are important in our society.
Tell us about the themes you pursue in your work
In my works I tell about abstract feelings that I think are difficult to explain and sometimes to understand. For example: our Comfort Zone, the important of slowness in our society that is so fast and the sensations about period for women, in a ironic way. Now, I’m working on a series of photographies: I take the photos and then my Grandma and I sew them with coloured wires to symbolize our link with the past and our memories.
Tell us how you organize, plan, and prioritize your work?
I am very precise and severe to myself. I take my time to study the topic, then I draw or take some notes about the project and I decide to use analogic (film or polaroid) or digital photography. Finally I take the photos.
I think details are very important, also the handmade frame helps to express the concept.
Professionally, what is your goal?
My goals is leaving a mark with a positive message. I’d like to show my art around the world.
Your dream collab?
I’d like to work with artists from different disciplines and sectors. I’d like also to have a partnership with galleries and artist runs and create site-specific works.
