The artwork that he presents for DinA3 is not far from his sculptural work. It is a run of sixty risograph copies in metallic gold ink. Ultimately, the author shows the fragile border separating material from psychic reality by making the visual explode.
The image is inspired by a digital photograph taken by the author in the Irati forest in summer 2021. The composition, the alteration through digital treatment, and the ink reflections result in an ambiguous reading of the image, which moves into the liminal realm between the abstract and the figurative.
The forest mannequin images by Hans Bellmer or the series of photographs by T. R. Ericsson on Duchamp’s ‘Étant donnés’ (1946-1966) are key references. In these, landscape works as an interior place, a psychological and emotional state where an essence manifests to remind us that certain places are only accessed without being present. They are seen without eyes or inhabited without living.
This artwork is a monochrome risograph printing in metallic gold ink that varies according to the incidence of light on its surface. Tones change, ranging from copper to gold, an effect that may not be appreciated with total clarity in website images.
