For these artworks I blended engravings on wood with digital superimposition of my own pictures or ones taken from the internet archive. I like to use the contrast between old and contemporary, warm burned and aseptic, human imperfection
and regular pixel informations.
As regarding the concept I basically started from the elaboration of a perception.
The following three artworks represent a visualization of the state of paralysis as a consequence of projecting ourselves inside our own mind instead of outside.
An unsolved in-between condition, a feeling of warmness and tranquillity, slightly unsettled by a conscious, unsatisfactory and nihilistic sense of loss of direction.
It describes a time and space where time and space are not reference points anymore, and the multiplied versions of us keep floating/sinking, penetrating each other.
The result is an image in which the fixity, that's proper to the image itself,
meets the inner circular movement of melancholy.
Selected for a personal exhibition at Balaclava Gallery
through the "Call for digital artists" contest.
