Winter Continuous Cycle

Mantua, a medieval small town in Northern Italy, is my hometown. I came back to it after many years living abroad. Of my past life I surely miss the metropolis’ hustle bustle and the anonymous crowd, but at present I enjoy the open view of three little lakes that literally surround the city and wandering in public parks on their shores.
Ciclo Continuo d’Inverno, Winter Continuous Cycle, is a perspective on these outdoors, where the city is a distant reality detectable by urban sounds and the skyline, with human presence only revealing itself through moving cars and thrown away garbage. In the meantime days and nights slowly alternate in the light and weather of winter.

I’ve always been intrigued by the changes of light and colors due to the passing of time, I believe they can have an effect on our mood and perception of things.
A connection with the ambient that surrounds me is paramount in my art.
