Far from noise and civilization, the stone island appears to us as a place of refuge that emerges from a hostile landscape composed of sharp rocks, the staircase invites us to reach a plant microcosm. If solitude has always tormented the human being (and particularly the new generations linked to social networks), here the island must be perceived in its symbolic dimension: a place to regenerate in contact with nature. The etching is precise in the details and the black and blue ink contributes to enriching the engraved design. Only few copies available.
