My work is a research that starts from a scientific approach to plants: botany.
But it moves to an ucertain field: the unconscius, the dream.
I look at plants with a sensibility that brings me beyond the scientific approach to explore human mind and soul. This is why i almost always combine plants with human anatomy, and medical records like x-rays.
I would like to explore more the portrait possibilities of what I do with x-rays, starting from the X-rays of a person, while sticking to the language that I started developing with my self-portait with my own x-rays. A language that reveals an incoscious perception of the self ( or the other).
I have been working also on private commissions with portraits based on x-rays ( in 2012 a famous showgirl in Italy, radio and TV presenter, fell in love with my work and gave me her x-ray of the spine to make a portrait and for her i chose the beautiful Digitalis purpurea.
