THE CRACKS WEEK: THE 5th IMAGE

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). Since 2009 I’ve been also workin’ on another matter. Not paper but metal and plastic surfaces, or metal and plastic platings which are usually considered as a disturbing element for our eyes.

So, I entered the wonderful and imperfect world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered as a life’s metaphor. My eyes and cameras discovered, in cracks magnifications, another astonishing textures in what we consider waste materials. Also my Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this picture.
