Self. These multimedia drawings drift systematically from my works Mutants and Venus. When my working hand gets over-charged with numerous layers of pigment, I interrupt the current drawing in order to save a memory of it by leaving a hand-print on a fresh sheet of paper. The fleeting refinement of the print plays a crystal-ball-effect on my imagination: I revisit the trace, sometimes many months later, by adding new elements, partially revealing the unseen.
