Tirelli's artistic philosophy consists in geometrical figures, rectangular and square structures delicately suspended in a tension between light and darkness. His enigmatic forms reflect a number of Tirelli's enduring preoccupations with time, space and what lies beyond. With their different architectural features and arresting contrasts of lights and shadows - nuances of modern-sfumato - the works evoke a fluctuation between appearance and disappearance which epitomize the artist's vision - a search for the mystery of the visible and its concomitant inner reflection - and his aspiration to elicit active sensorial and mental participation from the viewer, - "I'm fascinated by surfaces and what is on the other side of them." says the artist.
