Opere StoricheIn my painting I relate to different things, such as: my own history (I think you cannot describe the world unless you start from your own roots), the art history. Space and time composing reality and forming the painting in the memory.
I think about the artwork before I paint it. However, if an idea has already formed in my mind, while I paint I follow my thoughts, that can suddenly change.
The painting is the tangible object, the measurement of my knowledge of the above mentioned factors, the goal of my action. In the end, it will come alive on its own, changing as the people looking at it change (1964).

Alcune Opere DisponibiliThe linguistic constant that is present in all of Zen's artwork of the last ten years, and even more so in the latest years, is the restlessness of the trace. That motion and commotion, in the layers that are superimposed and can be perceived, confirm what has been said about this restlessness, that it is never dramatic, but it's driven by the tensions towards new challenges, in a continous questioning of painting, that knows no bounds.
