Recycle of a painting : I used an old painting that I recovered with white gesso a few years ago. This white film was cracking, so with a spatula and a cutter I removed it in places. Then I discovered some interesting flat colours. After I adjusted my composition by urbansketch in charcoal and I painted with acryl colors.
💫 My interpretation: I scratch the past, the history, into the canvas. In this way, it creates a new texture. Sculptures like characters in a Greek theater.
