Diorama de Paisagem
In an apparent cubic wood form and by including an edge of approximately forty centimeters, Diorama de Paisagem is made of acrylic glass, mirrored film, branches, leaves, moss and acrylic paint. Inside we can see a suspended natural form - frozen in time – as we try to witness and discover a place that emerges as inspiration or an original archetype.
Nature, as an untouched and virgin space, includes the viewer through a series of reflections and allusions to the landscape. The observer is thus invited to witness and participate in a visual journey where, step by step, he or she can discover the object in order to engage with the different points of view. In the work Diorama de Paisagem, landscape expands from its limits in order to include us and to annulate the boundary that distinguishes mankind from Nature.
