IMAGINARY MAP OF NEW YORK
Oil on canvas, 50 x 50 cm, 2006.
This painting belongs to a series of pieces that were inspired by satellite photographs that today, with tools like Google Earth, allow anyone the virtual exploration of the planet. Starting from those real images, I rework those aerial views, inventing new codes of representation and new decorative elements. The map is distorted, deformed, altered as if it were a past memory, but something of that place is still recognizable.
