“These ghostly and enigmatic images (Genesis II) operate, in their unexpected forms, forces and rhythms, to fix light memories – matter loses density and everything happens to be seen, among the same deep gray, by its incandescence, by its luminous nature obscured, timeless and infinite.

Genesis I plays the game of duality between the positive-negative, delineating a path from the image to the matrix. Rather than the derivation of the same theme, Genesis II signed the materialized recovery of light, stemming from the sober and rhythmic alignment of rectangular columns – 

as true scintillation sustainers – the light crosses the matrices subtleties, to cease its function of all the visibility medium and reveal itself, dazzling, as if it hastened, as if it sought to determine at all its symbolic reference, that of the divine excrescence, exacerbates, as a life that never ceases to be done [1]”
