Forty years of activity in the art world, over 35 personal exhibitions, a poetic painter, a life filled with experiences, Odierna was born in Southern Italy one of the principal subjects of his paintings, not of course Italy of the tourists but a place where nature, although small in dimension, offers a variety of mood.
Following in the footsteps of his teacher the great seascape painter Michele Federico, Odierna, like a good islander, loved the sea. This great love is shown in his seascapes where the waters take on their own personalities, the waters of Italy: Trieste, Chioggia, Venice, a kaleidoscope of impressions and sensations, expressed with inspiration and great technique.
