intaglio printing on paper, metal frame, text

This work goes on analyzing the grieving process for a loved one. A small detail in the middle of a large sheet: it is an intaglio printing portrait, a silent hint made precious and visible by an antique and finely decorated frame that holds and protects the main lines of the portrait against vacuity. The image is precious, but the memory is not limited to that small space or to the tender features of a loved face: it spreads out far beyond, all around. Over the limits of the frame, the memory fills in the space as suggested by a small strip of paper, a handwritten note fixed in the middle.
