The Landscape project started in 2018 with the idea to express itself as a reset of the classic academic landscape painting exercise for the representation of a wide and careful composition of natural bodies in various geographic, chromatic and climacteric contexts, where human or artificial structures where, sometimes, also included.

The intention is to remove the term “scenic” and two-dimensional aspects from this artistic expression, updating it to a contemporary context, with four dimensions, leading the viewer to witness this landscape, this “frame” as a real and natural physical space.
Thus, we no longer integrate an individual graphic interpretation, but evolving to a full
experience with a tectonic reaction that encompasses multiple perceptions and interpretations.
We are now inside a limitless space for art, and we unconsciously enhance our abilities to perceive space without Cartesian references.

Landscape is an “homage” to nature as new perceptual exercise created through the insertion of a disruptive artificial element. All of the installations are temporary and all materials used for the construction of the pieces are reused from waste of cinema decor industry.

Through this construction, the artist reveals his imaginary, and the viewer his perception.
Form, scale, color - search for configurations without equivalents in the natural
environment, to establish a new scenic dimension that provides the observer with a different reading and experience of the landscape, with the main purpose to promote awareness and appreciation of both.

It is a moment of contrast between reality and illusion, organic and geometric, natural and artificial.
The idea is to expand the Landscape project to other territories with a new process of investigation and installation, with the intent to record as maximum landscapes as possible.
