About Complementary and Complete
Since I’ve started to be interested in art, I’ve always felt compelled to create both portraits and abstract artworks. And I’ve always had the vision to be able to merge one day these two worlds, which at the same time I’ve also being feeling to be two very distinct worlds. In fact, I’ve always associated the portrait works to my Mind, which is very rational and controlling, and the abstract works to my Soul, which instead is more instinctive, creative and wild.
Because of this kind of separation within myself, I’ve struggled for many many years to find what I call an “inner agreement” between my Mind and my Soul, and therefore to be also able to paint with both Mind and Soul at the same time, and make my vision about “abstract portraits” a reality.
Until, one day in 2021, I’ve realised something that changed my view of things and my vision of myself and my life, and so also my art: that both Mind and Soul aim to the same, which is expressing themselves. And that this self expression doesn’t have to happen at the expensive of one another: actually not only Mind and Soul can express themselves at the same time, but when they actually do it, they create great synergy, which leads to a more pleasurable experience of art (and life) and more powerful and original works.
Allowing my Mind and my Soul to cooperate and work together made me finally feeling whole and complete as a human being.
