Paper Tree #03 is a drawing made with black ink (points 0.1 and 0.05), paint and chalk. The background is also worked with inks on absorbent paper. The result is then a numerical transformation known as "in negative". Paper Tree is a series of three drawings, one plastic and the other digital, an exploration of materials, which I call the "Negatives".
The final work is a print, a pigment print, art paper 308 gr, which highlights its plasticity. If the aesthetics of Negatives is fundamentally different from my drawings on paper and wood with black ink, fauna and flora remain the main subjects.
The various references and inspirations of the Negatives are also attached to the work of the biologist Ernst Haeckel, more broadly to those of the botanical plates and the cabinets of curiosities, the ancestor of the museum of natural history where, since the Renaissance, the wonders of the world, cultural and natural, were gathered together. Prints are sold framed, under glass, in order to preserve them.
