PAOLO BUGGIANI


STATEMENT


I could not conceive of art without experimentation. For this reason, I choose to live in modern cities as they are key hubs of communication. I also love watching the sea from a deserted beach, because the breeze and sound of waves have been unchanged for millions of years. I would like to be a plant to taste the soil; a fish to breathe water; a bird not to have vertigo. To be a saint and believe in Heaven and Hell; a witch doctor to believe in macumba. And I would like being in my studio with no phone, with perfect light, before a large canvas playing with colors, as if the canvas were a playground.

Tuscany is my land and beyond the hills that form a curtain on the horizon, I know there is the sea. Mine are the natural colors of frescoes, and the ideograms that flower from the canvas, the synthesis of my language.
