italia

Ink drawing dinosaur allegory Italy
Ink on paper 56x76 cm

"Italia" - Black ink drawing on medium grain, 300 gr, 100% cotton Magnani paper. 

 

The Italic monster, eaten alive and now reduced to bones, keeps looking back, holding its new born creature tight on its back - immobilized and under control. The golden age is far away, the vital organs hang suffering. The womb is entangled in filamentous laces, which are all our castrations, bans, conformisms and fears.

 

From the series "Fossils"

Ink drawing of urban roman landscape
Ink on paper 56 x 76 cm

Black ink drawing on medium grain, 300 gr, 100% cotton Fabriano paper.

 

Roman landscape, especially in the suburbs, suffers savage land erosion and building speculation.  Human dimension is lost in futuristic buildings and old structures, cement blocks and unfinished roads. Black holes and multitudes of levels and planes create an incongruous no-man land, with no direction to take.
