La Craquelure

mag.MA: “What is normally perceived as a surface, a two-dimensional drawing, cracks like dried mud acquiring the third dimension. The cracks model themselves according to the surronding, sinking because of the contrast between the natural slope of the ground and an ideal horizontal plan and widening to allow the olive trees of the surrounding slopes to regain possession of the place. The bench emerges becoming a bench for all ages and all sizes.”
