To my mind they aren't dots, but drops of water.


I use a technique which finds its roots in the Australian aboriginals’ ancestral dot art. Actually I have reinterpreted their art, giving to my cyan works their own particularity and unicity.

These are illustrations made of millions of micro spheres that vary in size on the basis of the visual rhythm I want to confer to the drawing.  To my mind they aren’t dots, but drops of water, which together form an image.

Here too there is a strong conceptual component, we know for sure that water is a substance at the origin of creation, we ourselves are made of water for the 70/80% and so is our planet – the Earth. Isn’t it incredible?

The creation of the blueprint illustrations represent the most meditative part of my work.
