Memorias, Drypoint on japanese paper and lightbox, 84 x 77 cm, 2019. £1400
This work belongs to a series called “Memorias” where the artist through the drypoint method reflects about the idea of representing landscapes from his motherland printing it over and over until they become blurry, abstract and hard to see. Also the work is part of an artistic action where Mario wonders the streets of London with the work folded in his pocket as a guide and reminder of home.
