Silvana Mellacina, amazes. I say this with all sincerity, his work is imposed in space, subjects anthropomorphic suggest a process of metamorphosis floating in a space no space, space in motion whose technique of writing makes vibrant, in contrast to the static nature of the figures subject, white color which breaks the rhythm of the fund, puncturing and breaking through a static conceptual rhythm continuously and the cosmic void from which seem to arise. Great technique and skill.
