Nel Nero

Nel Nero, 46x46cm, wax pastel, wood panel, 2016

A window to an invisible organic world. A black point which attracts the viewer, as if it is hypnotized. An apparent nothing that hides  organic forms.
Forms that are not immediately revealed. The work forces the viewer into a strong interaction, it has to be observed  from different angles, in order to perceive the organic forms concealed in it.
The wax reflects the light in each sign that I carved into the paper, which makes the work vibrant and alive. In this way not only the carving but also the material helps to define the meaning of the work.
