Questo lavoro si interroga su cosa accadrà. Paesaggi intriganti e quasi fittizi, immagini non nitide e danneggiate, volti e parti del corpo irriconoscibili ci fanno vagare in un mondo incolore. I dittici assomigliano al modo in cui ricordiamo le cose. Afferrare ricordi spezzati per affrontare il futuro incerto. Questo lavoro non racconta una storia. Si chiede.

 

 

his work questions what is to come. Intriguing and almost fictitious landscapes, unsharp and damaged images, unrecognizable faces and body parts make us wander through a colorless world. The diptychs resemble the way we remember things. Grabbing to broken memories to cope with the uncertain future. This work doesn't tell a story. It wonders.
