Art Description

Printmaking: Aquatint, Mezzotint and Drypoint on Paper and Other.

The composition of this graphics sheet comprises presenting only one motif egg through which the various dimensions is multiplied. Five eggs presented in a vertical position, set on the horizon of a reduced imaginary landscape. They its various dimensions, and their partially covering / shading with horizontal flow of clouds that linger over them, except that shape and facilitate the effect of their voluminosity, they also rhytmic and disturb the monotony and silence of the lanscape simple structure of the composition. From the left and right side are the biggest in size eggs, while the other three, one of which is higher versus both small, their upper create an invisible line of quite discrete semi-circle at the bottom of the horizon, discreetly accentuated mild perspective. The absence of birds is compensated by the presence of their trace, or with eggs, and the simulation of their landing on a flat surface, which in nature is common. Left of the leaf, the largest egg linear treated (like all others) is at the forefront of the horizon. Egg until it is slightly with drawn and closer to the horizon, while the other three are on a tight line on the horizon. In this graphic in which the absence of birds is replaced by the presence of eggs, I spontaneously threw the response that Silezius gave "The egg is a chicken, and the chicken in the egg"
