TEMPORAL INTERSECTIONS
My series blurs historical timelines allowing the observer to transcend epochal dimensions, traversing past and present. 
Photographs reveal sculptures recovered from the blue abyss of the submerged ancient city of Baia and lifeless masterpieces displayed in museums. I reinterpret the images and splice together jellyfish drenched in shimmering colors that ooze vibrancy like the magma bubbling under the Mediterranean seabed of the Phlegraean Fields. 
Sea creatures perform a mesmerizing dance encircling marble figures, providing a glimpse of their previous lives. WhatsApp messages bring back our focus to the modern age of constant and relentless information.  
Clashing dimensions from different eras blend into the suchness of the present moment, creating my “Temporal Intersections”.

Where are you? I miss you.

Reverse Metamorphosis

 “Reverse Metamorphosis”, which is part of my “Temporal Intersections” series, takes inspiration from my fascination with medusas and from the expression that I saw in a sculpture by Antonio Canova, “The Genius of Death “, that I photographed while on exhibition in Rome in February 2020, just before the current Covid-19 pandemic restrictions.  According to researchers, the jellyfish appears to be able to conduct, under certain circumstances, a reverse metamorphosis, thus defeating death and becoming, in a certain sense, immortal.  The colorful beauty of the “immortal” jellyfish appears to be unequivocally opposed to the cold expression of “The Genius of Death”, where light and color of life (we hope) will defeat the marble coldness and darkness of death.
