News: The portrait tells
Galleria di ritratti di circensi

Candy butcher, oil on canvas 2018


The portrait tells the inner tension marked on a face, an essential need. When you look at it, you have to be able to feel the anxiety, guess the eyelid twitching and what those eyes are watching, understand if that hand on the arm is taut or relaxed, if the ears are reddened because of the costume or the stress of the moment. These imaginary faces disclose emotions, feelings and attitudes: joy, passion, mysticism, fear and desire, which belong to true and told stories. And then there are the eyes, form and substance of that secret that we are looking at: ourselves. This and much more is what I portray of the various world of the entertainment.
