About me

art is a moment

My story

The interest in art was born in the early 2000s when I started travelling and visiting exhibitions and museums both in Italy and abroad. I started getting interested in making some art about in 2011, after buying some paintings of artists that I liked.

By studying the history of those who had made those paintings and why they had come to their artworks from their thoughts, I felt the urge to look for my own language to carry my thoughts and ideas to the outside.

As I was progressing with my work, many paintings on materials ranging from canvases to paper up to cardboard recovered from industrial packaging have accumulated although almost all those works have been destroyed. In about 2014 I decided to stop to deepen and better define what I had tried to translate into images.

At some point I stopped from the initial (instinctive) phase and focused on the idea of ​​colour and the thought that generates it.

The preconceived thought representing the limit of our point of view; both in colour and in life.

White pictures filled with the word that identifies the colour, even if it was not present on the canvas, to create a picture of that colour. This to shift the attention of the spectator from the colour itself to the way we look at the world around us.

Finally I shifted to making artworks composed by endless lines that enter the outline of the canvas and then come out in a path that started physically and temporally.

A moment before entering the canvas which we can describe as invisible and unknown, then we enter the space of the canvas and finally we move out towards an invisible and unknown beyond.

The space of the canvas is the telescope, the spyglass through which we look outside ourselves. The lines represent the world outside of us which is made up of everything.

These lines enter at a given moment in the viewfinder of the telescope, entering the canvas with their paths and then leaving it.

On the canvas the artist also paper cuts which are strongly representative images of the moment to reinforce the idea of how events continually overlap in the world but we remain and we only know what enters our canvas and our spyglass.


Assolutamente di stampo contemporaneo appaiono le opere di Alessandro Scalabrini. Artista che lavora con tecnica mista come ad esempio ritagli di giornali, fotografie e un imprimente utilizzo della biro, realizzando collage in cui parole e immagini si intersecano generando un conflitto di idee che danno vita a universi altri, e che nell’alternanza tra provocazione e umorismo attraverso la loro struttura circolare infrangono idealmente la linea del tempo per trasformarsi, proprio come suggerisce lo stesso artista, in attimi che passano davanti alla nostra visuale per poi spostarsi.

E la forma dei dischi di Alessandro sembrano voler evocare l’impercorribilità di un tempo infinito che inesorabilmente ci sfugge.
