In Eco (Echo), the simple shapes of assembled boxes or frames do without any foreign element that could distract attention. The artist focuses on three rectangles that represent the boxes’ outer edge and the three that form the background, in an ensemble that confirms that any object can be a subject for art. The renaissance perspective and the careful fading of color offer a disturbing realism that incites the viewer to delve into an imaginary, tidy and empty space, which gives rise to a visual play between the inner and outer worlds.
