The signs of writing remain readable but not interpretable, as the remainder of a movement that induces us to read not the product but the production process. The deviation of writing is an inimitable mark of a gesture, of the artist's body dispersed on an expressively crafted textural surface. Scattered signs in the void next to geometric linear traces give rise to a set of spatial densities. Between the opacity, the surprise comes to the encounter of a word "sea", that next to the title, Deep, acts like bait signification: the nominalist power of the name activates the capacity of evocation, bringing all the references of which it is depository, a set of sensations without analogical relationships that converge in the intense and deep blue.
