Alessandro Roma

I Live and work between Milan and London.
In my paintings, tactile and organic visual episodes slide into one another, establishing connections through affinity or contrast. For me, a painting is the place where a simulation occurs, where an image is the result of a stratification of experiences. This series of paintings reveales my fascination for landscapes and the attraction I have for Rousseau’s last writings and concepts about Reverie. The paintings depict fragments of nature that appear at first glance as abstract surfaces within a uniform and vibrantly balanced composition. In a random yet intuitive approach, I use collage technique or layered painting to compose elements of landscapes and offer the viewer the possibility of strolling amongst various points of view and of finding themselves in a state of reverie and dreamlike perception of nature. The act of watching the painting goes side by side with the act of perceiving, entangling all the senses.
