Engraved sheets of zinc, copper and brass are the basis of the artist’s work on space, developed at the same time as the architectural constructions made of chalk. They bring out the characteristics found in these constructions: occupation and mobility of space, movement within the architecture, and light.
These sheets are covered with a mat varnish, then engraved using differently sized metal tips. Each engraving provides a notch in the metal that catches the light. The sheet is then covered by an infinite number of marks engraved in all directions creating a luminous and moving material. The composition or structure and the result vary according to the light and the position of the viewer. The surface of the sheet is an ever changing space.
