  • "Since 2010 I began to ride my congenital attraction for architectures: their huge volumes and gigantism, their shapes and textures... Fascinated by perspectives I was taking photographs without fully understanding what my attention was attracted by, what I tried to represent with a shot and his post-production. Photography as an opportunity to take a fragment of reality and make it a meaning, butalso, conversely, as an expedient to let a significance take possession of reality to bring out himself. The contrast between these two visions became the source of my own reflections. Slowly I realized that psychology was an integral part of my creative experience. That I wasn't trying to represent architectures, but to use a photograph as way to strike and confuse my perceptive system. So I started producing the first works that were later structured in“Istigkeit”. While creating images i realize that i was getting more and more closer to the idea which was guiding me. Trying to invalidate the perceptual and cognitive mechanisms involved in the conceptualization of a given entity by our brains. At a first sight each work in “Istigkeit” project seems different from what it is; and what it is not always is visible, or at least clear and obvious.Volumes are artificially combined in the shadows and give rise to solids whose meticulous analysis reveals their illusory value. Youfollow a surface which then splits. You focus on walls and windows,but these interact and merge themselves into conflicting objects and paradoxal perspectives. The sight is lost in the complexity of textures, intersections and overlays... Nothing is what it is and everything is what it seems. And sometimes, during the perception of what it seems, inside the mental mechanisms that lead to the interpretation of a given scenario, perhaps your Ego can't impose itself on a more primitive interpretation, rooted both in individual,collective, cultural and archetypal symbolic components..."
