The creative process

The creative process is a relationship between matter and mind.

This is true for me, and my paintings are the "products" of that relationship.
My idea (the project, what I want to represent) gives a shape to materials I use (gesso, glue and colors), but at the same time the materials can modify or change my initial idea.

This relationship between mind and materials is what makes the creative process exciting.

When I paint I never start from a drawing, but always and only I start from an idea, a mood, perhaps from unconscious fragments that push to get out, and while I try to give a shape to the idea (the "incorporeal thing"), I let myself be carried where matter tends to go, because the real body is a physical thing ever.
