The watercolor from a new perspective plays with its physical state: liquid watercolor is frozen (solid), then melted on watercolor paper (liquid) and sometimes vaporized with the use of fire. When on ice, it temporarily lends a sculptural character to the work. In his experiment, the artist modifies his painting technique, mixing and printing the ink to the paper. The next process is photograph, which is printed on sticker paper and attached to acrylic plates. The allusion to bacterial culture plaques is one of the purposes of using this support. To assemble the artist as a gallery, these plates are attached to a raincoat, as a reference the uniform used in laboratories that deal with dangerous bacteria. To go out into the streets is to make the work complete at its core, to be a Gallery Artist.
