Reflection that can be extrapolated to the relationship and manipulation of Nature by us. This series combines painting with technical image. Specifically in this work the photographic transfer procedure has been used. The main artistic reference being the pictorial collage by Robert Rauschenberg (USA, 1925-2008).
