Collage of dyed paper 298 x 250 cm - 2018
Inspired by the classic of American literature Walden - life in the woods, I worked with a contemplative attitude, dividing my time in walks and researches among the dirt roads and the quite impervious wood of the Tuscan hills.
In this territory i looked for plants from whose leaves and fruits I have obtained decoctions and juices useful to dye the paper.
The color palette that was thin at the beginning of the research has become rich over time, paying more attention, training the eye and approaching the natural context, the eye has been able to find surprising and satisfying nuances and gradients.
The collage I made brings the gaze to a simplicity necessary for the encounter with nature.
