Images are marked by sunlight on paper and velvet. There is also a sculpture made of sugar, a substance that comes from the chlorophyll photosynthesis: it reminds me of the windows' glazing in the Palazzo Te. "Così in terra" (As in earth) is part of a research path that explores the manifestations of celestial luminous matter in the vital phenomena of the planet. Light is a sculptural matter that suspends time in images, transforms substances and shapes the form of things of nature.
Playing with impermanence, one finds oneself meditating on time's cycle, in its diverse journey between us and the universe, towards a new materialism of contemplation. Donata Negrini
