Born in Rome, 1972. Lives and works in Milan.

The polyptych on the famous croissant of Urs Fischer (Cupadre 2009), is a part of a larger cycle of works, focuses on hermeneutic exploration of renowned artworks. Comparing two among the many analogies I have been able to identify regarding the work of Fischer, instead of disambiguating the image I have added further complexity, encouraging the viewer to undertake a surplus of interpretative effort.
