In this painting I wanted to experience the possibility of portraying myself both in front and behind. I put a mirror in front of me and another large mirror behind me. What the painting shows is the image in the mirror behind my back, projected into the mirror in front of me. In this phase of my art, I try more in my paintings to leave a personal mark of my existence and my life experience. On the wall I hung a self-portrait made by me in red pencil, when I was about 30 years old. 40 Years of artist's life have passed between these two self-portraits. Past life and future life. I wanted to give my painting a space-time. My image today shows the inevitable aging, but not the end of my art. Now I feel even more the desire, to make full use of the time that I still have available, to express through painting this special period of life in which the experience and sensitivity of a past world merge together with the experience of a contemporary world.
