“Valzer Tra Sogno & Realtà” is a painting that belongs to my series, Full Circle.

From the first stroke to the swirls, the ribbons and all other elements that are the defining signature in my art practice, this piece felt like a dance. I loved working on it so very much. It was effortless, from the preliminary brushstrokes with square edge brushes and sponges to the myriad of minute details in the background, layered on the “broken” brush textures, intentionally filling each part of the artwork. I recently came to the realisation that my whole practice and work stem from a great need to see and “consume” texture, in all sorts and shades. I am so drawn to creating aesthetically pleasing textures that often times that craving takes over everything and you’ll find me absolutely lost run repetitive, extensive work until the need for my eyes to feed on a particular texture has been satisfied. 

“Valzer Tra Sogno & Realtà” was no different other than in one painting alone I get to celebrate most textures that I love and by doing so achieving all sorts of colours. This piece feels so colourful and rich, and yet so peaceful, serene and joyful, like a waltz. The title of this artwork in Italian means “Waltz Between Dream & Reality”: I always find in my art that I paint the world that is most precious to me and when I do, it is such a captivating, mesmerising and entrancing experience that it feels like daydreaming. It is like being present in your absence. And so it is here, in this imaginary place that I dwell, in a place that only exists in my mind and yet is so very real. Is it really that absurd to think that in my abstractions I am painting my reality?

Picasso said, “Everything you can imagine is real”.
