Il Peccato 2020

Paper, Acrylic Color

36” x 10” x 36” | 90 x 25 x 90cm

I grew up in Italy where il peccato, the venial sin was illustrated on books as a black spot on your heart. It intimidated me.


I found relieve shaping and painting on paper the sin in the most beautiful shades of blacks using gloss paint and giving to the darkness a unique sense of light and brightness.
