My human and artistic journey traverses hybrid landscapes of investigation, immersing me in different territories and communities. In my exploration I investigate matter not only as a physical entity, but as an everyday spiritual practice. The search for origins and sense of belonging plays a central role in my artistic and existential journey, and the duality that has characterised my life since childhood finds expression and release in art, in all its forms. With a profoundly multidisciplinary approach, linked to the earth and its elements, I conceive my artistic practice as a bridge connecting the universal and the deeply personal; and nature as a welcoming home that transcends geographical boundaries. In this dialogue between worlds, I explore what is beyond the visible, probing time, movement, body and space, matter and landscape.
