Sediments of times

This project explores the concept of time from a subjective perspective:
the infinite time, the potential, and the time being, the actual, and the possibility of initiate a dialogue between these two aspects.

I’ve experienced decay and transition processes by combining layers of different materials either in the body as a series of strata and in the surface. Emulating sedimentation and erosion I’ve added different clays and slips to create a shapeless mass which I’ve later defined looking at a totemic form inspired by ancient Sardinian marble Giants of Mont’e Prama. I’ve been experimenting with engobes and glazes to create my own material language, developed from a selected palette that has informed my visual research from Pompei frescos to Francis Bacon painting.
