Description from Italian artist

Attracted by the beauty of the fabric construction and starting from the concept of warp and weft, I developed a system of representation of the image curious and innovative.

I started to investigate the ways in which a sheet of paper can change according to the type of cutting and bending, and I identified in the system of weaving an alternative way for the realization of three-dimensional shapes.

The idea is not to create three-dimensional objects based on body shape, but to transform a two dimensional surface such as paper, in three-dimensional object adapted to body contours. I used these two-dimensional surfaces as pictorial space and through an elaborate system of scanning the image I created portraits.

The result is a sculpture of colored paper twisted. They are portraits of views. They are people. Identity anonymous. And ‘an abnormality of thought. They are portraits of contemporary people to 360°
