About

Claus Word, Italy, 1989.

​Painting in grey shades is a sort of union between past and future that I’m trying to connect: today the high definition is always more developed in every field and in the contemporary realism, the max technical level is the obsessive research of every single little detail.
In my personal view, the high definition of hyperrealism meets the fascination of the past times.
I also focus my attention on the dual concept of life, emphasized through the bichromatic lens of white and black, as light and dark, fused to form a single indissoluble thing.

About BEYOND REALITY series:

In this series I’m analyzing the human gaze, investigate it in his natural perfection:  any eye could create a new world completely stranger from anyone else that I like to probe in the deep. These paintings present close-ups of eyes through which I examine the expression of universal emotions related to the feelings of loss, confusion and frustration, emanating from the solitary search for our own identity. Furthermore, the gaze represents the subjectivity of a point of view, also in this case, unique and personal. “The most fatal illusion is the settled point of view. Since life is growth and motion, a fixed point of view kills anybody who has one”
