A lighting-flash…then night!
Charles Baudelaire, Fleurs de Mal

Space and matter are nothing but two binding elements of a sole universe and the truth relating to it, a truth that for a moment unveils the illusory existence of the world.
Reality and illusion are not the attributes of the material world, yet concepts which are perceived from a personal and self-conscious perspective.
On the other hand, the creation of art springs from the unconscious, starting with an appropriate distancing one self from any kind of definition.
This series is the outcome of a conscious lingering within the realm of the unconscious.
