Fenomeni naturali (2003-in corso)

These are anthropomorphic portraits composed of plastic fruit and vegetables, or flowers and small animals, with which the artist translates the kitsch taste of a domestic ornament into a cultured reference to Giuseppe Arcimboldo's mannerist paintings. Depending on the material chosen, the artist gives a different title to his creation: “contadino” (farmer) for the Arcimboldo made with fruit and vegetables, “poeta” (poet) for the one made with synthetic flowers, “guerriero” (warrior) for the one made of plastic animals.
