His painting is intimate and visionary, forms in transit, flowing, in progress, "hybrid icons" which cancel all distinction between abstraction and representation. ... an evocative, refined, synaesthetic painting that alludes to poetry, music, dance, always etched by a melancholy wind that is first of all breathing and inner breath".
From the text Suspended Breaths by Gabriele Simongini. - Cat. De Luca Ed, Rome 2019
