Exhibition Vélo velo at Milan, curator Marie De Cossette

and Francesca Montà.

As a contribution to the exhibition "Vélo Vélo", my wish was to work on a pattern large enough to completely fill in a scarf making it a "symbol-object". So I sketched a colored flat tint, something like a saddle, a shape that I have always found very attractive. It looks like small abstract sculptures owning a strong suggestive power.

Repetition and juxtaposition of this flat tint, colors’ rhythm and texture of the original pencil line allow me to create this pattern spread on the scarf surface. A very large pattern but hidden within the scarf’s folds when worn. Then appear other shapes, other vibrations, other moves…
