How red those petals are! They are like stains of blood… on the tablecloth.
It is not wise to find symbols in everything you see. It makes life too full of fears.
It was better to say that: stains of blood… are as lovely as… rose-petals.
Carmelo Bene – Salomè, 1972

Through my work I seek to reconsider iconographic and common images, investigating
the unknown communicative and narrative possibilities in within them.

My projects are often inspired by popular songs, movies, and historical events.

I am interested in how visual art can contribute to the understanding of wider concepts
related to the society and human nature.
