1990 - 1991

In this group of early works, the media used (mostly woodcut and etching) were not chosen so much for their potential to produce multiple copies but more for their particular mode of expression: the deep contrasts and the sharp incisions employed in engraving are the perfect means to illustrate the profound contradictions and paradoxes that make up human existence itself. The fixedness of the compositions is a historical reference to the symbolic landscapes used as backdrops for the holy scenes in Byzantine and medieval iconography.
