Artist Statement

My aim is to create a mirror of what it’s happening in my Country. Rights and freedoms suspended in order to fight an invisible enemy. Fear and panic are some of the abilities that it has in order to create a suspended reality in which everyone is closed. These works show different phases of Covid19:
– Going outside but with masks, almost even not knowing why
– The distance inside our homes but with a little hope, the feeling of being all together in fighting this situation
– Panic with stores and cities desertified but still with the virus in streets
-The situation of Italy, with people tired (mentally and physically), and economically destroyed
