The traces of foam that the waves leave on the shore of the sea have inspired the series of paintings “La memoria del bianco” (The memory of white) made using only the color white on linen canvas raw. The foam of the waves represents a “matrix” of white from which material and ethereal landscapes are born, take shape and force. These are places that are not places without true spatial references, projected into a timeless dimension, suspended between figuration and abstraction. The white reflects natural light and, with its infinite nuances, its various movements and thanks to the strong and imaginative brushstrokes, leaves its powerful memory, but ephemeral, on the sand. In these landscapes I sometimes insert bodies that emerge and merge with the arabesques drawn from the foam. They are suspended in moments of peace, abandonment, contemplation, which take their energy from the water that forged them. They are in harmony with the white of the waves that, wrapping them, conceals them and at the same time reveals them, evoking the purity of an ancestral world. With these works, I try to explore to the full the evocative power of white and its ability to make us cross the border between reality and imagination because seeing is imagining … and as W. Blake says: “The Imagination is not a state: it is the human existence itself.”
