Storm and Assault is almost a statement. I exhibited the great paintings with that title, that title which has accompanied me ever since, in La Salita, the historic roman gallery of Giantomaso Liverani for the first time in 1980. Since the early 70s I have been looking for the way that would allow me to get out of the waves of conceptual art, which I considered mediated and indirect communication. I wanted a painting of impetus, a painting of gesture made by quickly entering the canvas, because it has always been like this: I thought of a painting and considered it done. The rest was just working...
It came naturally to me to go fast. Liverani understood this pace perfectly and so after the "Takète o della Scultura" exhibition, at La Salita in '79, it was the turn of "Tempest and Assault“ in 1980.
Today I imagine my artworks crossing the ocean moved by its dark waves to reach La Salita Madeira, which of La Salita is its confirmation and its future.
The title is, it can't be anything other than: Storm and Assault
