Horror vacui, from Latin, means ôfear of empty spaceö. It was first used by the Italian art critic Mario Praz as an expression to describe the very detailed - almost suffocating - style of interior design in the Victorian Age.á
ôVery detailedö is how I would also describe my style which I decided, for once, to abandon, as I abandoned my home to move to Iceland. In fact, I left behind the flourishing and luxuriant Italian countryside as well as beautifully suffocating historical cities to choose the vast emptiness of the Icelandic lands. The overwhelming awe that such lands evoke in me could only be translated in a much simpler and ôunpolishedö style of my drawings.
All the works of this series are speaking through literature or music, trying to voice, in their own way, different kinds of emptiness and nostalgia.
