On the excessive plural

The work I now present comes from my last series "cordial changes", devoted mostly to develop what happened with joining two different and cut bodies or shapes.

Therefore, the starting point of this new work has been a kind of enchantment before two arising elements which kept me fascinated. Now, what I now try to do is going a bit further beyond this so powerful presence.

To this purpose, the first tool I used was repeating again and again this dual figure. This repetition became the first element of my new work: 44, a wall piece made out of some forty four twin enamelled drawn brooches. I t is to me a sample repertoire, examples without theory.

As a sort of a projection of this pieces, an excessive reflex, new corporeal pieces appear. They grow as a kind of three-dimensional unfolding of this formula: 1 + 1 = 3. This excess applies either to their shape, volume or colour. Also, the material and the finishing out of the pieces tell about real or fake shine and gold.

As a soft reverberation of the 44 elements, there are also a number of drawings which intend to portray a languid and lateral light. This corpus can be seen as an evanescent dreaming of the same issue.
