Artist Statement

Common sense depicts the concept of “generation” as the fact of being born in a determined period, and of living a common cultural and social climate, that leaves a trace in our way of feeling, how we think and act.

I believe that history has not just been made by kings or wars, but by common people. People who are almost all lost by the memory of time. I do not want my generation to get lost.

I have an idea of generation as a story being told and I aim to portray my generation and its beauty: the beauty of its happiness, the beauty of its pain.

My work is mostly dedicated to the stories of women. A constant source of interest is the contradictions that shape our reality, especially regarding women and the intrinsicate contradiction they (we) live in: the duality between the poeticized image as saint, muse, goddess, and the inequality she faces in the real world with the constant request from the society to blend in.

At the same time I am also very influenced by the tradition of portrait coming from my italian roots as well as the arts and crafts from all over the world, therefore I chose to use the traditional format of portrait, adapting it to the era I live in.

Beyond the portrait I like to examinate the history and traditions of places and link them to our current world, through different media.
