Mindfulness III

From the depth of the blackness of a linocut matrix I extract light with the help of small points or fine lines. I work with precision, for example using the point linocut technique, which requires discipline, patience, concentration and time. There is no room for the smallest flaw. Under each point, woven by a fine hammer, point after point, passes a minute after minute, more and more minutes, hours, days, my life, my existence. Graphic art has become a measure of my time. It sets the rhythm of my life. My choice, this type of work in the cycle called Silence, is the consequence of my being consistently faithful on the pathway of light, its mystery, purity and shine. In a linocut I build hues of greyness, similar to effects produced in an aquatint or a mezzotint, the two techniques which I have felt close to for years. My artistic career is mostly a ‘metaphysical’ journey.
