Memorie di contatto is a series of works on the specific physical state of selected natural elements or “situations” bound to change over the time. All paper bas-reliefs are outcomes of natural-elements moulds made by me inside the wood on Como Lake and Camonica Valley or moulds of human beings tracks of different periods in history. The relation between real elements and the material used to make the moulds, has signed these touch memories forever. My idea is also to work toward abstraction. Use of materials like paper, wax or bronze permitted me to give to my reliefs a freedom from models. I was interested on avoid a realistic reproduction of the subjects, by allowing a new perception of them.
