My poetic investigation is based in drawing. The collage works to erase or diminish the inscriptions by overlapping. The cut draws a line in this specific work. I created landscapes with different layers of paper on personal photographs taken as travel souvenirs. The layers cover the city’s skylines, leaving just the sky visible. The colours of the papers create a scale of distance, like an aerial perspective.
