In the mood of ancient painting

My love for ancient artworks is so strong, that I feel the urge to copy them and make them mine. I feel curious for ancient, traditional techniques, too.

Saint Jerome

How many different and contradictory attitudes can be found in the “myth” of Saint Jerome? The beauty of studying on our own, the selfish desire to avoid problems, the focus on ourselves, the escape from a difficult situation, a melancholic feeling towards our past life, the unconfessed longing for the mundane world, a narcissistic self-complacency… and many others.

Classical landscapes (with surprises)

In this series the imitation of classical art is very strong, almost literal, yet I always try to suggest some reference to present days.
