About the Project
This work can be described as an endless piece of research, a rewriting of the memory with no practical or academic purpose, an exercise of recovery of personal analogies, an accumulation of recurring memories.
To make a series of images to be shown on Instagram.
MS Paint and a mouse.
When I start drawing I have a general idea of the image I want to present, but it is not very specific or detailed. Because of the tools and the approach I use, there is always a certain degree of uncertainty and imprecision.
9 images, each 800 x 800 pixels.
I always draw the same pictures. It is hard to change habits.
Every form is extracted from the past and used. History becomes a flat surface where we can pick every reference without the fear of what there was before or what there will be after.
