Where is your inspiration coming from?
My inspiration for each object derives from geometric interventions into architecture and the urban decay of the built environment.
What are you trying to communicate in particular with your artwork?
I am looking at the effects of time on the built environment and the spaces around us. There is no definite message in the work. Each object is constructed in order to generate a feeling of loss, destruction and nostalgia.
Which material you prefer to use and why?
I prefer to use sterling silver and silver based alloys because it is conducive to the process of fusion in which my practice is built upon. The particular colours that silver produces once heated, melted and reticulated gives the work the desired characteristics in relation to the concepts I explore.
How much value do you give to researching material for your creations?
Researching materials for my process is continuous. I highly value material research because it is constantly fine tuning the process. The process of fusion has a high fail rate, so researching methodologies and materials becomes an imperative part of my practice.
Is it more important for you the process, or the final artwork itself?
Both in different ways, but ultimately the process of fusion determines the outcomes of the work. There is a spontaneity that directs the final object.
Is there an artist you prefer and why?
I have always been fascinated with Australian painter Jeffrey Smart's paintings and his depictions of suburban and urban environments. I admire his use of perspective and banal subject matter.
Have you ever thought to collaborate with other artists, or you like to work on your own?
I have thought to collaborate with other artists through the exhibiting process but not in the making process. I do prefer to work on my own. I would like to work with 2D artists to develop strategies for displaying my objects.
Where do you feel you are at with this last collection?
I have been trying to integrate geometric patterns to further embellish the objects in a more structured manner.
What have you discovered of yourself, are you satisfied?
I have been attempting to create smaller scaled objects but I feel that it can become contrived. The objects become lost because they are so small, in turn requiring more intimate examination.
Two words to describe your last artwork collection.
inizia un nuovo format di
diari di viaggio
che di volta in volta pubblicherà per ogni artista che avrà voglia di lasciare la sua testimonianza.
saranno pubblicati sotto forma di intervista personale,

myday-byday will try to interpret the life, the thoughts, the fears, the successes,
the fragility, the happiness behind each art collection travelling through the world and space of myday-byday. These artists try everyday to express themselves through their art, in different ways: from painting to sculpture, from design to photography, or other artistic forms. myday-byday is in constant search for 'beauty', but always at the service of its artists. The goal is: to be able to share and communicate with all of you what 's behind their work.
