digital interpretations...

of a dream-journal!
No. I don't keep a journal of my dreams, just notes... scribbles actually, that often become real drawings! When I look at those scribbly notes of mine, sometimes I don't recognize their source; other times figures and situations become once again vivid scenes that beckon me to join their dance in an absurd moving landscape.

summertime's blooms...


It is a very hot and wet summer, and my garden truly loves it!

Everything is in a blooming frenzy, bees and butterflies are constantly around and I have to admire all this magic from a distance. Despite all the protection I take, the mosquitos are after me, attacking me en mass; as a result going outside to check and photograph my plants has become an agonizing, painful and itchy experience. 

So here my solution/consolation;  bringing the blooms in, and using scanography to record their intense beauty and discover their silk chiffon like softness and preciousness still intense at the end of their lives, at the very end of a summer day.

in print!




I am super excited to have my cyanotype works in print!

These works were created several months ago, they were exhibited in the beginning of this year, which means that for me -the artist- their chapter has really closed. Now days I am immersed in new rhythms and new creative rides, and I was totally surprised by the strong connection I still felt while designing this book. The sense of my deep commitment towards that project was alive again, and the realization of the effort and the emotions I invested in its development... startling!

I will be happy to hear from you, your comments and thoughts on this type of work presented in this type of book.
Talk to you soon.

imagining...


Walking through the neighborhood of this "old" for the "new world" neighborhood, I can't stop imagining how this same part of town felt and sounded  in times past, the generations who lived, laughed and cried within these walls, their rituals, celebrations, mournings, their ups and downs that echoed in these same streets I now walk through, following my everyday's life script.
This work is part of a series I am developing, narrating the process of my imagining...

patterns...

"playing" with type, folding and creasing paper, photographing/recording and then... playing some more in digital mode and flair;  What a bliss!

a notebook


Sometimes I am asked to create work for a specific purpose, using conventional bookbinding techniques, but still having an "art object" presence and feel. This notebook belongs to this category.
Wrapped on paper I paste-painted on both sides, I used a double pamphlet binding to stitch the signatures on two separate accordion pleats folded at the cover's center.
cover: Rives BFK paste painted on both sides
signatures: Velin Arches
two ply waxed linen cord, flour paste, acrylics
8.5 x 6"
