Art Description

Collage: Paper, cardboard and printed-paper on Paper and Cardboard.

Three-dimensional complex collage created using printed-paper recycled from magazines, newspapers and catalogs.

The paper has been selected according to thickness and colour. It has been cut into strips and folded in small or large "concertina" with a squared base. Each of them constitutes a 3D pixel and have been placed within a rigid grid, that is mathematically conceived, and glued to a cardboard base.

“Repetitive complexity makes simplicity” represents the nature of this artwork. Looking closely, you could find thousands of fragments of words, faces, colors, symbols, pictures and letters. But if you just stand back, they form an image totally new, simpler and independent.

The image is readable or highly distorted, depending on our point of view.
