"Historically, in Christianity, the precious remains of a saint take the form of a relic.
A saint's body provided a spiritual link between life and death. A bond between man and God.
In its literal form, these sacred bones are the remnants of decay, death and loss.
Through my last two series of works, entitled "Relics" and "Modern Icons", I try to interpret the religious values ​​of these physical relics and their value in the contemporary age.
Memory and Presence; not religious but spiritual values, inexorably linked to the past and the present.
These remains are objects that become memories of the past, classic and contemporary at the same time, yet they connect us to something new and inexplicable.
For this reason it is linked to the passage and return of man and to his deepest origins. I chose to represent a door, a sort of symbolic, cathartic passage. A light drapery, perhaps holy, ethereal, but at the same time evocative and classic, almost disturbing in its temporal immobility. The circle (perhaps a wheel?) As an eternal return of an aestheticizing memory, both idealized and profound, hidden in the past and handed down to man through spirituality.
I try to recreate those memories in every detail of my sculpted relics and icons, be they living memories, the physical structure or just fragments of faces, muscles, drapes, depicting the force that binds the body to the soul. And, at least, in this composition we find bronze residues, informal and spontaneous waste as residues of a great immortal era. "
