How to give more importance to the present? Maybe by giving more importance to the sensation of the present. How to enter a lyric and subjective world of observation, rituals, memories, and decay? Author is creating a collection of the sensual memories of the observer. Memories take the form of paintings – thin layers of paint cover the sand, the glass, the pine needles, the branches, the chalk and the prints. The movements in time: walking barefooted through a muddy, extinguished volcano surface of Manziana (Italy); the creative transformations – clouds leaving the earth planted with brushes; the decay – these are various processes that give significance to the passing of time.
