All works are unique monoprints on a parchment-like paper, which are hand-coloured with charcoal by the artist himself and distressed with oil on paper to create a sense of aging. The large sheets often have a symmetrical structure and convey the impression of very old codices with a distinct alchemistic, mythological, esoteric content.
