Biography

A painter and sculptor, he lives and works in Turin. Making his debut in painting in the late 1970s, he started with references to conceptual analysis but soon moved on to large material surfaces created with mixed media, forming the outlines of skeletal anatomical parts (Anatomie, 1984). In the 1990s, this imagery began to be reflected in sheet metal, which was cut and then resewed, suggesting organic sutures.
