... What is striking in these surfaces that require particular exposure and lighting in order to reveal themselves in all their complexity of sign - color - light, is a sort of ambiguity. Ambiguity that on the other hand does not arise except from the way in which the painter resolves the relationship, between planning, and geometry on the one hand, freedom on the other ....
Roberto Bernardi (Gallery)
... In these recent oils on canvas, now natural supports for an even obsolete, liquid, extensive exaltation of color, some material body emerges which stops and insinuates itself into large backgrounds; narrow or enlarged by rigid elements almost finds of a past geometry, no longer credible, not for a construction accepted as an assumption, but as denied by the same pictorial making ...

... It is no coincidence that its colors are scattered in squares and parallel lines, it is no coincidence that the dark alternates with the light, chasing each other relentlessly between memory and fantasy, between reason and feeling as the artist must do with all those who they want to feed themselves culturally ...

... It describes stylizing, it effectively colors wide backgrounds with aggressive painting and he draws with a determined air.

Paolo, I met him a long time ago and immediately a relationship of mutual esteem, friendship and therefore confidence was established, agreeing on many aspects of our lives. The Art, its expressiveness through the colors and the peculiarity of the forms I have known them afterwards, being immediately struck by the multiple shades of its colors; I think they represent Paolo's most intimate self, the "Positivity" or the search for it in every circumstance and so the "light" is always present even when the hues are darker. I am not an expert, I am not a critic, I don't exalt his works, I have limited myself to describing the emotion I felt having, fortunately, been able to admire many of his works directly in the intimacy of his studio together with Donatella and Silvia.
