THE CRACKS WEEK: THE 7th 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, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. So, I entered the wonderful 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. Yes, cracks as “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection.

My eyes and cameras discovered, in cracks magnifications, another astonishing textures in what we usually consider waste materials. Also my Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this picture. More Cracks will be on line soon in a special gallery…

  1. A very interesting picture. These cracks show some degree of fractality. The same processes (drying or shrinking and stretching through heat?) obviously works at different scales, resulting in small networks of cracks between the larger ones. The result is an irregular fractal with similar but varying structures across the picture and on different scales.

    • Thanks Andreas for your precious comment! I saw this in Milan, on a metal door covered with varnish…Due to heat and weather conditions, the varnish cracked… The picture is one of dozen I did that day…
