Oil on sterilized hospital sheet
Size: 400×400 cm (62 pieces 50×50 cm
This work is composed of sixty 50x50cm paintings. I use hospital bed linen to clean brushes, stamps, paint containers… I also use it as a tool to make interventions on my painting, mostly scratches. Afterwards, I usually discard these pieces of fabric. In collaboration with Venezuelan designer Javier Gil Ribera we saw these pieces of fabric together. We achieved, on one hand, a piece of art that works as a whole or as smaller separate paintings, and on the other, a product that is entirely recycled. Beauty lives around us. It is just a matter of conscience to see it, but bigger car or a bigger house will not help you in this task.
