“The pages of this book are made out of my old painting cut in pieces. I stitched to them three kinds of objects: old slides of my artist’s books, agave thorns from the desert I live at now and found metal pieces, whose history is unknown to me. All of them speak about time, transience and places and create short stories on every other page.”

Materials: linen canvas, gesso, paint, ink, found objects, linen thread
