This small serie of works on wood, started in the summer of 2008, is the continuation of a site-specific piece presented at Orange gallery in march 2008 (Alphabet). By making the art objets represented in the works an extension of the space where they are exhibited, a gallery or a museum, these paintings reflect the phenomenological nature of the act of visiting an exhibition space. The object is «framed» by the gallery space, and the latter becomes a part of the visitor’s experience. The visible wood surface evokes the way depth and surface interact in the play between the represented space and the characters.
