The use of the computer in the development of studies in drawing or digital painting has been a regular practice of mine for several years. This digital file contains photographs, scans or simple drawings made directly on the screen through the different softwares available. The selected themes take common names like “skies”, “bodies”, “accidents”, mountains” or “architectures”. After working on these images some of them appear to be finished, I then decide to print them and continue to manipulate their surface with ink, pencil or oil sticks. It seemed interesting to me to reveal this digital work, sometimes the base for different types of works, like paintings, installations or projects, and to try to raise the veil on the “before”, on the process of my “doing”.
I therefore decided to make a choice of these building blocks and make them available as digitally signed and unnumbered prints. These will be available for a limited amount time and a possible reissue will not be available for at least two years.
