The painting is foldable, does fold on itself.
The bench is stable, do sit on it.
“3XL-DSCN1989” stands for; “three times eXtra Large”
plus “Digital Still Capture Nikon number 1989.”
Adrien Vescovi makes paintings by exposing multiple fabrics to outdoor conditions; the weather then causes several processes on the textile: like Sun-whitening and ripping, and dye will drop and leak in between fabrics. Time makes paintings, or might the Earth have made the paintings? We are the new hippies, is a nice way to say it. Adrien crafts the stretcher for his paintings, that now include elements of carpentry, such as the hinges of a window or a door; there is a bench from where to look at the painting. Hugs.
