Minimalismo Etrusco 1, print, 1/1, 7x9 in
During my residency at La Macina di San Cresci, I created a series of prints titled “Minimalismo Etrusco” to further my goal of simplification. In many aspects of my life, including objects I own, words I use, and my art, I aim to assume meaning with less. In my artmaking, I use a soft voice, almost an understatement with silences, and pauses which create spaces of ambiguity where the viewer can escape from the limitations and complexities of a well-defined subject. By presenting a mere hint of the story, I evaluate the possibility of art to provoke seeking for emotions. Through the act of revealing or concealing, similar to a fenced garden which partly obstructs the view, the viewer stays longer to find out what is hidden behind. This also empowers the viewer to imagine and make their own aesthetic choices and personal interpretations.
