My work “Bird Rib” questions the effect that the "digitalization" is taking in the panorama view, re-marking the boundaries of the relationship between nature and technological progress. The world I created is crossed by a paradoxical form of mixing between the natural and technological artifice, and oscillates between a descriptive real and abstract imagines. In my paintings there is a form of anxiety that lies behind the ambience and serenity of a seemingly healthy and unspoiled nature. This nature is far from the “human” eyes because it is polluted by core technology that scans and encodes the representations itself.
The anguished vision of birds burdened and forced to dragged down by a "cast" of colour, which I imagine as a real "tear of nature" crystallized into an icy perfectionism of colour, is a symbol of humiliation for us men and progressive inability to recover in an authentic relationship with the nature itself, now reduced to a land of conquest and exploitation.
