«As an artist, i always tried to understand and describe human feelings.

I’ve got the Asperger syndrome, a form of autism that gave me a high Q.I. but bad relationship skills.
In the High School i always had problems to understand the toughts of my classmates and how I must relate with them.
With my sculptures I create “casts” with blankets wet with gypsum, placing them on living bodies and waiting for them to solidify.
In these casts I try to reproduce the shape of the human being, like a photograph of the bodies.

My works never have definite faces, because it is impossible for me to understand the emotions of the people, due to my syndrome. They are always empty, because the internal body has evolved and disappeared, and thereis only remained the envelope, like a chrysalis, but now the present individual has managed to overcome and improve his condition. This is a metaphor of my course to understand human feelings.

The individual human represented in the artwork, like a figurehead, remain immovable against the storm. The wind bring him down to the floor, but he doesn’t bend, like a reef against the ocean.
My work is born by the attempt to represent the “individual evolution” and to describe metaphorically my past. I had a lot of social problems in the High School because of my syndrome, and I was victim of the bullies, my artworks remind me that the stormcan be fought and defeat, if an unwavering willpower supports your mind against the lashes of sensitive experiences“ — Pietro Campagnoli.
