Big Trees series

“Big Trees” is a series of black and white big size drawings. They represent, at first sight, tropical tree in a frontal point of view.

As says very appropriately Clara Scremini, “those are not trees, but memories of trees!”.

This series is the result of an introspective and meditative process : reminding sensations from the past, the sketcher recreates those images of trees, coming from the tropical nature of his childhood. They are always treated like signs, like typographic sign in black and white.

The former intension is to give an objective reconing : an herbarium, an alphabet, a cartography of memories.
Though, emotion sweats through the tortured texture of the subject.
