A landscape is the millions of landscapes I have seen.
To see is to preserve, to stack one layer on top of the other, hundreds of thousands of images.
Ugly pics, classic tourists shots, beautiful photographs, one-second or one-hour long shots. All images, every second of the life.
Until one detail sums up all the experiences in a larger one, an image like a graphic word, the famous sense of the universal that we all share, "tutti, i belli e i brutti".
Art is the highest form of democracy.
Only very few of my landscapes are painted full air, and none from pictures, although I save inspirational pictures and I can sometime use them as a fast visual support or reminder.
This Plum Tree, for example, come from the inner world.
