bas relief with sandblasting
Variable dimensions
2015

Through a blasting machine sandblasting erodes and burns the surface projecting the word that gives the title. This type of equipment is used to clean painted or restored facades of stone or concrete. In this case the intention is not clean but rather, leave checked the wall in a draw erasing process. The typeface is based on the negative of a pipe ornament located in the gallery space, from here is established a relationship between architecture and typographic design. The relief formed in the wall and emptying technique reminds the sculptural process.

Show in Text y Tura. Nogueras Blanchard Galley, Madrid.
