Part of a new series of portraits, Reflection is inspired by old age, abandonment and loneliness. This work depicts scenes of daily domestic isolation.
This series of portraits is inspired by the faces and expressions of men and women from the older generation. The series, named “Pretesti di-visi”, a play on words in Italian, developed around my own reality and familiar faces, a pretext to explore the human face in all its divisive beauty. In these portraits I have depicted mostly the face of maturity in familiar surroundings, trying to tell the story of a long-generational journey. The results are a series of dreamlike, surreal, metaphorical scenes.
