Abstract landscape constructed by the repetition of the same gesture embroidered with 'Lunéville hook'.
The change in distance between materials changes the perception of it, a black spot, which can be less or more sharp. After studying the perfect minimal black embroidered matter (in Paysage 1.0), within the vermicelle technique using the Lunéville hook, the eye captures hitherto unconscious details: how the imperfection of the gesture and the change of memory of the hand moving across a large canvas, creates new landscapes, landscapes that seem to be painted employing painterly layers. The same repeated gesture that is deformed in the course of a long process (more than 280 hours of work) and does not give the work more meaning.
Every time the fact of embroidering backwards, blindly, the immersion in more interior fields, the concentration and the tension of the body when working with a large format are more palpable in the process. A work understood from the matter and the process.
