series - samples of forgotten memories
This theme is all about the underground world. So as to discover the secrets that it has to offer, I started an earth digging....So I dug deeper and deeper into the soil that stand under our feet. This is where we actually come to know who we are and where we originally all come from. This is where humankind History is written and delicately preserved for us to discover and keep it as a treasure. So in this section colors are dominated by earthly tones, brown and yellow ochre. To render the texture and the consistency of the soil I used some crude pigments and different textures such as fabrics and collages.
As my work could be associated to the one of an archeologist, or a geologist, very often the composition will use layers, as to imitate the stratums found in the ground. And inside those stratums, this is where fossils and intact objects are revealed to us.
