An original piece from the series “The measurement of space”, oil and pencil on paper, 54 x 42 cm, 2014.

I am a terrible chess player, because every time I play, I get distracted thinking that the chessboard may extend, spread in all directions, to allow to the pawns infinite movements, explorations and strategies. The black and white squares could be understood as the representation of space, discovered and explored, or conquered. And this representation may vary from person to person because each of us perceives the world in a different way. And so, the chessboard will look distorted and unrecognizable, different each time, because it would be the reflection of that unique and unrepeatable experience of the world that we did.
