The work analyses the relationship between the healing process and the pictorial one.
I tried to question myself about the reciprocity between therapeutic practice and pictorial gestures understanding the act gives body to the work itself.
Through this process I did not limit myself to reproducing the breast, but I used the pictorial medium to face the brutal reality of a torn body. A process that touches an intimate dimension of my memory and conscience. In this sense the paintings are not conceived as a member of a predefined series, but rather are thought of as a phase of a process.
Each painting establishes a separate step, a different approach to the representation of this subject.
The intent is to combine a superficial perspective – relegated to figuration and the epidermal manifestation of the disease – to an intimate and exploratory process.
