la ricerca

In the summer of 2017 I felt very lost. I started re-reading “La Divina Commedia” by Dante, because I knew the story gave the same expression as my experience at the time.

To explore the possibilities and discover the core of my practice again, I divided “Inferno” in 23 parts, and made 3 drawings accompanying each part. Each of the three pieces was always a specific approach to abstractly translate my experience and the story into a chapter without text. 

The concept of “loosing and searching” was important for this work, as they were the feelings I had when I started out creating them.
