"San Sebastiano"

"San Sebastiano"

To imagine art as a game of surprises and revelations, of images that are built and interweaved, of shifting forms between memory and desire. To define a figurative world through the classical foundations that support the liquid weight of the contemporary. To invent a linguistic code between painting and sculpture, on the ridge that adds plastic volumes to the iconographic skins of the quotation.
My art expresses itself through a mobile code, that is an autograph brand but, above all, a linguistic scheme between aesthetics and content. My works are pictorial puzzles offering multiple compositions, freely constructible or deconstructible. By rotating the parallelepipeds on a grid you can compose an image or interweave different images. An interaction with the viewer, who will be able to change the sequential order and, above all, to enter the dynamic principle of the original thought, completing a work that requires manual actions, tactile contact, active imagination and orientation of visionary imagination: a mobile code that reinvents the world on the strong roots of the world itself, thus cementing the foundations of memory, thus establishing the curve of this long line of horizontal time.

San Sebastiano
In our everyday life, constantly threatened by fundamentalist religious ideologies, the iconography of Saint Sebastian is linked to the theological meaning of the theme of martyrdom. The term martyr (from the Greek word μάρτυς, that means "witness") came to be applied to those who suffered hardships for their faith. The body of the saint symbolizes mankind pierced by the arrows of religious obscurantism; it shows martyrdom in the name of a faith in which the ideas of "right" and "true" are at the discretion of somebody who sits as a judge and charges the other of being "unfaithful". The “San Sebastiano”stands up as a symbol of man living in a historical moment in which the so-called "holy wars" deny freedom to live and to hope for a peaceful future based on a fruitful inter-religious dialogue.

Mobili connubi tra pittura e scultura realizzati con solidi che ruotano sul proprio asse, le sue opere - pensate per una fruizione attiva e dialogica con lo spettatore - sono il frutto di attente riflessioni attorno a tematiche essenziali quali il ritorno al figurativismo pittorico, il recupero della tecnica pittorica tradizionale, il compenetrarsi simbiotico dell’essere umano con il mondo animale e vegetale (motivo che trae spunto da quesiti etico-filosofici sollecitati dalla società contemporanea); tratto caratteristico della sua poetica è il costante riferimento alle testimonianze più alte della pittura europea - in special modo a quella compresa tra il XV e il XVII secolo - e alle narrazioni di carattere mitologico e allegorico riportare da Ovidio nelle sue Metamorfosi.

In una quotidianità costantemente minacciata da ideologie religiose fondamentaliste, l’iconografia del San Sebastiano si ricollega alla portata teologica del tema del martirio. Il martire è colui che muore per il proprio credo. Il corpo del santo simboleggia in questo senso l’umanità trafitta dagli strali dell’oscurantismo religioso; ostende ogni corpo martirizzato in nome di una fede in cui il concetto di “giusto” e di “vero” sono a discrezione di chi si erge a giudice e taccia l’altro di essere “infedele”. Il San Sebastiano assurgere dunque a simbolo di chiunque viva in un momento storico in cui le cosiddette “guerre sante” negano la libertà di vivere e di sperare in un futuro di pace basato su un proficuo dialogo interreligioso.
