Glazed Skies




Glazed skies are small scraps of skies that become effectively so once inserted inside a display. Raw and commonly used materials, necessary for the realization of the works in the studio, undergo a reversal and, instead of an object, they become an image. The rough surface of the abrasive paper welcomes the powdered chalk, which through the use of a brush paints clouds trapped in the roughness of the paper or highlights grains of stars to create a night sky. The cut on the side of the frame underlines the insertion of the paper, a single gesture that gives a new value to the material.
