I am obsessed with the detail and in the constant research for the surface, its texture and where it reflects light and re-shapes the aesthetics of the space. I like to experiment with the materiality of the object and the characteristic of its exposure to the light. I create the objects I use in the compositions myself to be able to learn about their nature more. In this practice I like to experiment with different materials in order to get closer to a broader understanding of fine arts even though my main focus is taking pictures of the things I make, whether it’s a painting, a sculpture, ready-made compositions, hand made jewelry or pottery.
I try to apply the same aesthetics of my studio practices to the commercial works as well, rotating between studio visits to design and interior stage photography, to product photography and art/music happenings. I enjoy experimenting with the lighting as another significant element of my work in these fields.
I also like to walk/hike/bike in the nature and in the urban spaces to find the very detail that is unintentional and random. It's like finding visual pleasure in unusual places. I collect minerals and rocks from all the natural places I visit, mostly, volcanoes, deserts, mountains, oceans and caves. It explains why I really am into textures and experimenting with different materials in creating my still life objects.
I am interested in studying the variety of ways possible to create the visual content from highly curated studio practice to banal and low resolution iphone pictures to screenshotting and over-zooming the images. I believe that only in this way I can thoroughly express my eclectic interest towards the visual material. In this research I am trying to memorize -or document- my personal development and to react to the different experiences I have been exposed to- in the curvature of my path.
