The work donated by Cecchini and the Galleria Continua is not a photo, or rather, the result is certainly a photo, but in reality the principle is the process within the photo – in other words, the true work of art is what it contains, because it cannot be actually called an object or a sculpture. This model is created in multi-materials later evolving to become a kind of “biological element”. This piece is part of the series Radiances, a term explained by the artist: (Radiances are) “macro photographs of different types of mineral rocks with a particular geometrical, mathematical and chromatic composition, which transform themselves into a kind of liveable space within a physical and poetic sphere. (...) The idea of “radiance” emitted by the mineral which, as a total entity, is transformed into an eremitic rock, is derived from the long history of the forces of nature to which we are subjected and my constant fascination with the infinite complexity of nature”.
