«Landscape-fiction» addresses the artistic genre of Landscape, but in a fictional perspective in the sense that elements that re-invent and re-interpret the existing and “real” landscape are inserted and merged. A fragmented landscape, through less classic processes in the engraving technique and that assimilate photographic images that, together with the matrix, stimulate imagination and memory.
