Statements on art

  • All my Artworks are the masterpiece of my immaterial mind... (Massimo Taccon)[citation needed]
  • My works are collected messages from the soul, and transferred in image to represent an inside world. I pick up feelings and intuitions to reverse them to the exterior, trying to launch a call in this world. What I expect is a definitive inside awakening of whom picks up the call...
