Artist's description:

In my latest series of mosaics I drew inspiration from observing the landscape. Not the natural, but the man-made landscape, especially the rural one where farmers have plowed the land, digged furrows, marked out boundaries, built walls and planted trees by using man’s language: that is geometry. Beautiful, spontaneous and not rigid geometries, changing according to the territory and its natural shape, drawing a completely different and poetic landscape. In aerial view it loses its material connotations, turning into an abstract geometric drawing.

I watch this territory and look into its structure, genesis, beauty. The naturalistic reproduction of the landscape doesn’t please me, I want to define geometries through abstract reading and offer a poetic synthesis in my mosaics.

I use materials with a strong evocative value of the Mediterranean landscape: GRES (soil, clay baked into kilns until it turns into hard material); STONE; VITREOUS SMALTI, green-silvered coloured like olive-trees; SOLID WOOD for the long handmade frames.

The artwork is a mosaic made of glass smalti, stones and gres on a plywood board.

This mosaic comes with an open handmade hardwood frame, as shown in the photo. The mosaic panel measures 48 H x 9.5 W x 0.5 in (cm 122 H x 24 W x 1); complete with the frame it measures: 56.5 H x 11.5 W x 1.5 in (cm 144 H x 29 W x 4).

The artwork is conceived to be displayed on the floor or hanged on the wall. It comes with metal feet and a wall hanging system.
