Project

Petroleum - contemporary landscapes.

Petroleum is a series of experimental calcographic prints: the matrix is ​​not made of zinc or copper, I use acetate sheets on which I apply voluminous colours (normally used for glass decoration); volumes created allow the ink to penetrate and be transferred to the paper. In this way, I do not use acids to dig the matrix. I "frame" the prints inside tuna can and I assemble them with other objects like binoculars, tubes, lens, rocks and much more. I want to represent imaginary horizons of an uncertain future where black oil traps everything it touches.

In all my production the relationship man/nature and its evolution over time comes back under various form.
