Each work in the series Orizzonte, begun in 1987, has an everlasting relationship with the name of its owner in the title of the work, and thus continues to write itself. “When I design a new horizon, I always imagine the straight line leaving my studio, entering the homes of collectors and joining the others to construct the ‚ideal‘ horizon of my life, the union of all those who love and support my work,“ says the artist. The sharp horizontal division into a white and a black surface, in which the surrounding space is reflected, creates an association of infinite space behind the line of the horizon.
