A passionate printmaker, Giuseppe’s practice is driven by his love of process and his muse – colour.
He describes himself as a minimalist, and yet the progeny of his process are beautiful, complex ‘objects’ – from bold, Fauvist landscapes to expressive, abstracts in a seemingly infinite spectrum of colours. When it comes to his abstract prints, he's restricted himself to six images. These provide the foundation for his experiments and allow him to focus on the task at hand: exploring the vast potential of colour by creating limitless variations. Born in Puglia and raised in Rome, Giuseppe has lived a truly global life (from Europe to Venezuela, Japan to Australia) and his travels have been a huge inspiration, informing his love of colour. A landscape painter for decades, he didn’t take up silkscreen printing until he settled in Wimbledon in the late 90s. Working tirelessly in his home studio, adapting to its restrictions and idiosyncrasies, he continues to plough a singular furrow, each print a stepping-stone on the path to enlightenment. As the printmaking side of his practice continues to flourish, we look forward to seeing where this technicolour journey takes him next…
