The architecture surrounds us, envelops us like a protective box for valuables. It delimits our environment, it establishes boundaries and points of view. It is a container and contents, a vessel for storing our lives. The lights and shadows alternate and create images that stretch into the streets and alleys. I painted this artwork on a beautiful cradled plywood, primed with three layers of gesso and varnished.

Getting to Know Alessandro

Alessandro’s artistic practice is divided into three series: nature, cities, and figures. Each represents a unique facet of human life on earth, and the artist’s understanding of life’s visual properties. “Representing life is the main purpose of my painting,” says Alessandro. “The human figure, the city, [and] nature are great subjects to study and transfer to canvas or paper, but what I’m most interested in is discovering and highlighting the relationship between forms and colors… This relationship is discovered by the careful observation of reality.” Although Alessandro’s inspirations come from real life, his paintings provide something far more emotional. Color and shape do not represent reality but are instead the artist’s interpretation of each subject. Alessandro creates his vision based in the Tuscan town of San Gimignano, Italy, from his artist studio located inside an old prison building.
