Antarctica Revisited, 2005

Scratched paint and charcoal on paper
168 x 123 cm

In drawings and sculptures made in the beginning of 2000 decade there is an incipient will to decompose a form and create a new one out of the remaining bits. Explosions, stratified structures expanding in space, broken architectonic forms encapsulated in rooms, are recurrent images. They all ressembled bursting structures surpassing their inner limits. Some works present themselves as compact morphologies, like concentrations of energy and matter, while others exemplify the contrary, desintegration and decay.

Antarctica Revisited was made by stripping off the superficial layers of the paper onto which the artist had painted and making a new drawing onto the damaged surface.
