The title of the 4'33 series is inspired by the song by the musician John Cage, who in 1952 composed a work of 4 minutes and 33 seconds of absolute silence.
Inspired by this "piece" and the concept of emptiness, created to listen to everything around us, between 2013 and 2017 I created a series of paintings on canvas and on wood with different means (mainly spray and acrylic paint) in one monochrome of white. Constantly seeking the balance between what we see and what we do not perceive, pushing me towards the threshold of optical perception, when an image seems not to exist and when immediately it becomes perceptible.
What comes out is works in absolute coherence with the silence: lightness is present, the images are observed from nowhere and are composed of veils, of absence, to materialize in barely whispered forms. It is therefore sufficient to observe the painting superficially to see a banal white canvas
