Comfort zone

The idealization of nature returns in this series of landscapes with a stereotypical aesthetic that perfectly meets the criteria of the digital world: one where dreams are standardized and beauty is the dominant element. These images that come to us from the internet form our current idea of nature. These days, the knowledge of what is natural is created through the observation of a monitor: you can enjoy the perfect landscape calmly sitting on your couch.

The paintings of the islands were created from collages of images of beaches and cliffs found on the internet, symbols of ideal vacation destinations. The mountain landscapes follow the same aesthetic, but their elaboration starts from photographs, which are then digitally elaborated and finally transformed into a painting. Throughout this process, all details are developed: the colors are brought back to their ideal balance and the landscape is modelled. The result is an aesthetic that is both monotonous and relaxing, where artificially constructed forms and contrasts are perceived as natural and absolutely “perfect”.

GLOBAL VISION

This series of hyperrealistic
paintings is
the mirror of a daily
ritual: individuals isolate
themselves and immerse
themselves in the boundless
virtual world. From the first
waking hours of our days,
to the last ones, we live
in a digital reality within
which we work, interact,
discuss, communicate or
simply surf the internet.
We live in an existential
paradox of physical isolation
and overwhelming online
connection.
This is a new reality
without borders, formed
by information, numbers,
emotions and ways of life.
It is a world that, thanks
to all our data, expands at
any moment and continues to
evolve even when we are not
physically present.
It is a parallel existence
that allows the individual
to become the entity of their
own creation, in a place where
social and moral structures
are not yet as defined as they
seem to be in the real world.
Each can create new roles,
occupy their own space and
experience scenarios or
transformations which would
be unrealizable in physical
reality.
