Entre les strates, j’entrevois, (Between the layers, I glimpse)

Velvet, iron-on, cotton, metallic and nylon threads, gold ink, wool, gold lead, 2023

One layer. One after the other.
One golden stain after another.
Thread. Dotted. Golden too.
The rite replaces the effort of will.

The gesture is liberated!

It becomes an escape, an odyssey.
A hole! A breakthrough!
I catch a glimpse.
The space between the strata. The light. The dark. On the other side, I move forward.

In confidence.
A mirror, a reflection!
A memory. Different. Sublimated.
Threads we let slip.
Links between present and past.
And between the layers, “I” and all the others!
