My paintings depict the colours of the Maremma, an area in the south of Tuscany, where I luckily spent most of year 2020, witnessing the passing of three seasons and a consequent colour festival that I tried to immortalise in my sequential photographs. Being careful not to make “painted reproductions” of my photographs I focused just on the colours. All paintings are made at the rhythm of music, listening to music and creating playlists, in fact, this was one of my favourite activities during lockdown. I chose music with no lyrics: no landscape reproduction, no singing, only colours and sound.
