2016 – Nigella – graphite – 50x35cm


“The Dutch invented the microscope … they were jewelers, lens turners. They cared for details, because there is a meaning even in tiny things.
Whenever you see a fly or an insect in a still life – a faded petal, the slight bruise of an apple -, the artist is sending you a code message. He is telling you that living things do not last … that everything is ephemeral. Death is inherent in life. This is why they are called still lifes. ”
Taken from: “The little goldfinch” Donna Tartt
Year: 2016

The art and the senses
Every means has its limits:
the music is blind,
the painting is silent
the paralytic sculpture
