Unlanded#1801
Unlanded#1801 orthogonally slices the contact surface of two masses: a watery, flowing one on the left and a stony, still one on the right. It tomographically depicts a wall of water facing a wall of stone. Unexpectedly, the slice has cut figures that were sunken in water and that will never penetrate into the rocky mass. So, they will remain unlanded.

 

Unmoving#1801

Unmoving#1801
Unmoving#1801 tells of the motionless horizon faced by those who were born along a trail, at the remotest corners of an endless, old-growth forest. The forest is life, it has become the atmosphere of those living within it. It is also the sole reality they will ever experience. Whatever the direction, the eye can only get the sight of the forest. The sky is far above the top of majestic trees. Time does not pass. Time does not work as usual.

BloodScald#1801

BloodScald#1801
BloodScald#1801 is a story of violence from a wasteland. It depicts a stream of blood that scalds the same flesh it is spilled from. It frontally slices a wound, unveiling the thick liquid drawing life from the flesh. The raw tissue of the broken body is dotted with burnt blood cells, cauterized by the same blood flow. The blood is red and burning, the burnt cells are black – fixed on the canvas like lifeless, empty eggshells.

Weight#1802

WEIGHT#1802
Weight#1802 tells of a heavy, immovable, oppressing presence precluding the horizon of those facing it. The more the eye tries spotting the horizon, looking at it, the more the sight is repelled by the presence. The view cannot be freed from a presence that impedes the ultimate vision of what is next or what could be. The eye is forced to stay behind, not even to imagine what is behind because to know the unperceived is impossible. The presence, its inner mass, and its weight remain the sole feature of existence.

Abyss#1810
Pencil on canvas, approx. 50x80cm
Abyss#1810
Abyss#1810 tells of an abyss over an edge, a vertical horizon pointing at the profundity. It is not a horizon to try to cross but rather a cliff to avoid falling into. Nonetheless, falling and sinking remain one’s destiny. It is a frightening view to the eye, insistently blinking to make it vanish. But the disturbing presence remains, the existence of the abyss is there, remarked by the floaters sliding on the cornea every time one blinks. “Un malaise” that one cannot avoid thinking about because it stays.

Place#1804

Place#1804
Place#1804 relates to the feeling of distance. A bright, broken horizon is instantly unveiled to mark its distance from the watcher. Electric discharges cut the sight.
