A two (reversible) sides installation consisting in two panels joint symmetrically.
Side A: Vine charcoal drawing on acid free paper glued on wood forms. with acrylic interventions.
Side B: White dry pastels on a black gesso surface with acrylic interventions.
In a true contemporary approach there are two phases – the building and the deconstruction. Phase one is a large dimensions drawings (8 feet long) of a very little vegetal element – in this case a cardamom seed ( barely 0.5 inches long). Micro-macro.
This art piece has two (reversible) sides. An installation meant to be presented as a free standing panel – a division of a given architectural space.

Diptych. The creative process includes two stages. The first stage is a constructive process and consists in a very large dimension charcoal drawing of a very small subject (in this case a drifting seed). The subject is portrayed in a symmetric, totemic manner using the unusual shape of this seed. The second stage is a de-constructive action. The realism of the drawing is altered by layers of acrylic paint applied using compressed air. There is a relatively hidden geometric shape present in the overlay of the second phase – an encrypted hieroglyph like a reminiscence of an unknown civilization. The two panels of this installation have unmatched shapes suggesting an impossible connection and they are assembled with industrial screws. Entropy, transcendence and complex geometry are just a few aspects explored in this artwork.
As a post-constructivist element, the panels have, symbolically, a missing space in between them, a suggestion of a possible liaison portal in between these two apparently incompatible worlds.
Complex geometries, multi dimensional space, entropic destruction and rebirth, hope, are concepts that the viewer can contemplate while in the presence of this contemporary installation,
