Self-portrait in oil on canvas. Here the subject is portrayed in three quarters, the white garment reflects the light and stands out considerably against the background of warm colors. The gaze fixed on the observer confers something disturbing and at the same time relaxing to the spectator. Work conceived and born in the Covid19 era, during the lock down in Italy, on which the author worked between February and March 2020 while the social fear of the pandemic was unleashed. A work therefore that has as its background a restlessness and fear of contagion, the discomfort of a new construction and order of society, an epochal upheaval that has affected everyone without distinction and has left a deep and indelible mark in the history of our civilization.
