I am the colour

The work is done entirely digitally, although it makes use of original old photographs dating back even to the late 1800s and original documents from 1870 to the present day.

The work stems from my need to discover the origins of my family: on each of the people featured in these 'cards' I put colour, which represents me, my view of the past, my being together with my ancestors. Colour is also our time today, it is life.

My family tree, in visual form, is a work on memory, on origins, on distance, on mourning.
