The sight of memory

Pieces of wood eroded by the sea wind, the rain and the sun found in the yard of my cottage, were selected carefully and became the raw material for the creation of the pieces of the collection. The compositions and the elements that were combined, express memories and my seeing of places, beloved ruins and old objects that have their own stories to narrate and talk about time, roots and heritage.
