The Géométrie plane series is a study of paper as a support for pigment. The original idea was to work with the fold as a process and method of applying the medium. Inspired by mathematical exercises and the construction of three-dimensional volumes, the artist folded paper and then striated it with fine lines in order to compose networks of canals. The ink then flowed into the concave routes, marking the support’s perimeter on one side, one step in the construction, one intersection.
