Genesis (2014) Temporary Symbiosis and White Wall Series is a contemporary art project in progress: two collections of nine B&W prints (50×50 cm).

After several years dedicated to experimental cinema, I got closer to contemporary art by the invitation of some curators and gallery owners. First with a series of short films (video-art) for the collective JUST A MOMENT PLEASE! then with LIGHTS OF PROMETHEUS (2015 Galleria Porta Mazzini – Rome), and now with GENESIS, a series of prints. Temporary Symbiosis is the first work, 9 framed prints that combined make up a larger square. A passage from the moving to still images, which allows me to summarize some themes, without having to explain with words as happens in movies. Images reworked using the technique of overexposure, as I did with my video-art footage. The purpose of this work is to create a non realistic place. At the center of each work there is always a human figure, bodies or parts of them. Sensuality is a recurring theme in my work, but there is more: with Temporary Symbiosis

I want to represent the temporary union that exists between feminine and masculine, between man and woman, a passage between the bodies and a separation. The last image depicts the two figures separated. The separation is described as a tear. On this frame there is room for interpretation, which I think is fair to leave to the observer. The photos overlap in search of a form that is not aesthetic but meaning. Images treated individually and then combined according to a precise chemical logic, designed to generate another type of material, composite, which I would call awesomeness. Awesomeness as a natural phenomenon that affects from outside the individual conscience. With this work I would like to give space to the inner images that are formed in our brains, in waking and oblivion. Representing the inner universe, the unconscious and the imagination.
