Tribute to a Body
White cubes suggesting the body, anatomic details that “dress” the geometric form organically. Structures and textures suggesting living shapes. Compositions and divisions of shapes, which only suggest, induce and describe. It is a game of deconstruction but also of presentation, an impression of something so familiar, a reflection in a cubist mirror.
