Charcoal drawing on tissue paper, 2018

The shadows of endemic plants, such as brambles, ferns, rosehips, hawthorns, dogwood, pine, hazel, oak, are drawed at the edge of forests. Of a rough construction, the charcoal drawings – branches of calcined willows – are imprints of an ephemeral state, which are embodied on a fragile support of tissue paper that had previously been used for the drying of prints, which retained the folds and embossing of the matrix plates used. All these representations of plants in negative, evokes to faith a theatre of primitive shadows, projected on the walls of a cave, but also the medium of the engraving, from which are borrowed remnants of the printing process, which allow to fix in matter, the organic forms in motion.
