From the aesthetic and complex forms typical of the Accademia, he shifts his internal focus to the matter that constitutes nature: a strong attention and marvel emerge for everything that exists, the elements of nature show themselves to the artist as participants honoured to take part in his art.
simplicity in complexity
“Respect creation, ennobling them simpler and more defenseless beings”.
Nature with its animals, lived as a source of continuity inspiration
The artist starts to move in the world in search of sources for his creations, letting himself invade by whatever the matter in the world instills in him. It is a way of honouring the wonder for creation which the artists intends to transpose in his pieces.
