The series “Take me to the stars” includes different techniques such as photography, sculpture, drawing and painting on paper. I present an aspiration, a yearning upward and toward the overcoming of oneself; the desire, meant as an individual aspiration and a search for love. I aim to show the sense of romantic escape and empathy towards something spontaneous and real. The photographic works are landscapes and places far from formal characteristics and composition. Places of hidden beauty made up of inconsistencies and interferences, where nature takes forms that reflect internal ones. I normally show places of secondary importance such as abandoned archaeological excavations. The forms of this modified landscapes become individual entities.
