I enjoy creating compositions rich in details and hidden meanings for which the 17th-century Flemish still life is a source of great inspiration.
I usually use vintage or antique objects that I choose from my constantly updated collection, but I love to buy and introduce contemporary manufactured objects into my sets to create unusual and refined combinations.
The idea for a new work starts from an object, a colour palette, an emotion that I want to evoke; flowers and food have always an important role.
I usually put together a number of things and start observing them, even for several days. The ability to physically interact with the set helps me to add, subtract, modify. The end result can vary from being similar to the project in its embryonic state, or completely different, and this is precisely what thrills me about my job: the discovery of oneself and the opening up of new paths to take during the creative process.
