"My identity as an artist is closely linked to the theme of painting, as an expressive and narrative tool, sometimes precisely as an object of painting itself which turns out to be the trace of a performance, of a doing that has to do with the body, mind and with vision, in the direction of assuming full consciousness in making images. Being an artist means becoming a filter of the world and being one today means affirming the principle of a liquid identity, rooted in history, victim and executioner of the present. The problem of the bulimic vision and therefore of the consumerist approach to images is one of the topics most addressed by my painting. My language is opportunistic and varies according to world circumstances. Technically, I move between oil painting and acrylic, sometimes I switch from the brush to the airbrush looking for linguistic grafts. I often transform my studio into a sawmill to create shaped wooden supports, to dialogue with the problem of getting used to the visual rectangle. " NVP
