Casulo I e II(2018)
(Cocoon I and II)
(Casulo) Cocoon is a series of 7 collage works. I try to talk about extremes - hosting x imprisonment, gestation x death, comfort x discomfort. The subtle moment at which recollection becomes death in life.

Develop a mixed collage - manual and digital at the same time.

Produces a substantial authorial work.
