His minimalist demarche doesn’t have a starting point in social or mondaine problems
but in the world of abstract forms.The field in which the artist enter, and where we, too,
are invited to step in, is one related to the world of purely abstract shapes, where the
motivation is abstract, the purpose is solely aesthetic, and the end result, spontaneous .
An approach which has its roots in the desire of understanding the aesthetic through
abstract visuality, by expressing the surface using crafting methods and exploiting the
dialogue between the three primary elements of the bidimensional image, especially in
painting: color, composition, material / texture.
The visuality of the artist reveals more about his qualities and his potential, than about a
possible passing trap, especially created only to include appealing effects or for
To Frank Stella, the enemies of art are “representation, reproduction, recreation”.
