Born in Milan, 1977. Lives and works in Milan.

From the spaces of the gallery the gaze shifts toward an imaginary exterior that turns out to be a lopsided, deconstructed landscape. Thus interior and exterior are fused, the expectations of one merging into those of the other. Straight lines become entangled and the consequentiality of perception breaks down. In the end the gaze loses itself in a multitude of discordant and yet harmonious commotions. It is precisely the dynamics of this representation that eventually ensnares the gaze.
