If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

Writing about Diego Santanelli represents a difficult task for me, because Diego, in addition to being an exceptional artist, is a friend. Synthesizing in a few words months of work and collaboration is without a doubt an arduous exercise. This text seeks to present to you the oeuvre of this artist, delving into the bases that conceptually sustain the curatorship of “Resilience,” his first solo exhibition in the United States. Diego Santanelli is one of those artists who fascinate art historians because he has an innate capacity to reinvent himself, to navigate the creative process while he analyzes and values successes and failures, to then retrace his steps once more and obtain astonishing results, which signify the improved synthesis of prior achievements.
