from the series “Houses on the water”, oil on paper, 2016. ORIGINAL SOLD. When, in my holidays, I go to visit a seaside town or a river town, it often happens that I am involved into the classic tourist trip on the boat, or vessel. Such an experience, by definition, is a little superficial: the distance from the coast, the movement, the limited time, all these elements combined together make the perception confused. But at the same time, perhaps for the fact that the focus can not dwell deeply on anything specific, the end of this experience gives a reminder of the whole, that could reveal the spirit of that place. It 's true, the details are confused, the facades of the buildings overlap, we are no longer sure if the front of that palace was on the Grand Canal or the Giudecca, but probably at the end of the journey, that will remain our most intense memory of Venice.

Even with today’s technology, man cannot replicate the building of the Great Pyramid of Giza. The Chinese tried, and failed. Hauling fifty tonne stone blocks, perfectly cut, was a feat that even the ingenious Chinese weren’t up to. So was the Great Pyramid actually built by man, as is the established doctrine? Or was it the work of extraterrestrials, hovering above the Giza Plateau lowering the blocks into place utilising some sort of levitation technology that we are not yet privy to? Perhaps the Pyramids are natural formations? Now that’s a theory we have yet to hear.
