“The artist firstly applies with special resins numerous feathers on sheets of coloured plexiglass which are subsequently brushed with one or more pure pigments, then washed and dried, and eventually hand painted with acrylic varnishes.
A steel frame is to complete the works, and is thought to function as a reflective screen that reverberates the synthesis of both the colours of the paint and the plexiglass itself.
Therefore the painted matter becomes a fragment of delicate light and impalpable colour, somewhere between ‘something pungent and wild, and something ethereal’, as the artist himself describes it.
Each work appears as an airy vortex of feathers, frozen in its dynamism like a temporary and elusive moment in a film frame.”
