Surveyor 2.0, the Sicilian artist identifies this time on the maps returned from cosmic space images of an unprecedented, unexpected garden, of a rediscovered “Eden” that inhabits the terrestrial globe with man, despite man. They are abstract and figurative shots at the same time. Abstract as the foundation of a visual field that rests on the autonomy of a graphic and chromatic language that emanates directly from a satellite; figurative because it represents the formal outcome of an ars combinatorial dense of assonances with the literary hazards of Italo Calvino and Georges Perec, returning immediately intelligible images to the photographs (the morphology of trees and plants is always evident), however a prelude to meanings further, to different and not approved interpretations of this. To the real space of contemporary geopolitics, to its conventional borders, art thus continues to oppose the internal time of its own codes, made up of distancing, of interval and of an irreducible sense of utopia.
