"I am an artist. I always have been. And I am also Sicilian. Since 2015 in this creative phase I have been making sculptures with materials that I salvage on the shorelines of my hometown, mostly wood, metal and plastic pieces. I like to think of their history. I decorate them with materials that people discard, and while doing so, I clean up the places I visit. I love nature and I respect it. I know the places where I can find material... I have a visceral relationship with the sea; and I like to think it rewards me by always giving me something for my sculptures. Recently the woods also give me valuable material. Its a question of paying attention. I am in love with what I do, it makes me feel free and at peace with myself, and the relationship with nature makes me more creative than ever."

MY WORK & OTHER EXHIBITIONS

" The ReCreArte gallery in Locarno will be exhibiting sculptures of fish and sailboats, elements related to the sea. I like to share my artistic passion, so I am working on a project of educational art and creative recycling workshops combined with environmental awareness. The project aims to create a network of like-minded people, with absolute respect for the world that so generously gives us a home." A.Andolina
