Artist Statement
 

My inspiration comes primarily from having grown up between two cultures. Among my sources are travels, late Medieval and early Renaissance Italian painting, Surrealist painting, and Italian folk tales, as well as the writing of Jorge Luis Borges and Italo Calvino.

A reflection on the relationship between perception and reality is my thought process, which, in turn, reveals a series of contrasts, such as the present and the past, old and new, the real and the imaginary, life and death, and the animate and inanimate.

I work in gouache on paper and board, and in 2D digital animation. I think of my animations as moving paintings.
