Mirage is a project series revolved around the exploration of different inorganic materials portraying the intricateness of the beauty within the natural world. It is the challenger of what is being seen at first glance versus what is hidden within the layers of its mysterious essence. This project serves as an entrance into Mother Nature’s world for the viewer to be immersed in, while discovering aspects of it which spark the question of what is truly considered natural and what isn’t.
Mirage 2023, Part 2
The artist intent and objective for this project series, is to play around the awareness of how human waste becomes part of the essence of nature once it has become resiliently challenging to decompose. Representing the capsule of a frozen moment in time where nature is being captured through the lens of how it could potentially exist and what it could become within the current times of our world or the creation of a new one.

Legami (Ties), 2022
“Legami” is a project based on the foundation of love, rediscovery, strength and magic. It unfolds the powerful layers of a mysterious yet beautiful journey inspired by the teachings of the writer Bernard Benson in the book “Il Cammino della Felicità” (The Journey Through Happiness) and the teachings of the artist’s mother struggling with diabetes since a very young age. It is the passage of time and the capsule of truth. In other words it’s a bond, formed by many bonds and created within the principles of the power of embracing change.
Layers of Nature, 2021
‘Layers of Nature’ is a project based on the representation of rebirth, transformation and metamorphosis. It is a mixed media collage painting consisting of the incorporation of acrylic paint, ink, clear glue, glass, glitter and fake moss, combined together to form a magical and surreal reality. The overwhelming usage of the colour reflected by the shimmer of the glitter, represents hopeful and vibrant emotions, in contrast with the darkness of the ink paint which symbolizes a sense of mystery.
‘Layers of Nature’ addresses the creation of the unique representations of dreams, memories and daily life surroundings, altered and transformed by the visualization of the artist mind.
