Hand drawn with vigorous detail, the cosmic landscapes in the series The Rivers Flooded are also the result of a play of infinite combinations. In these images, the artist interweaves elements taken from the scientific imagery of yesterday and today. These curious collages, which are based on both the idealised projections of the 19th century and the photographic holdings of NASA, give rise to new, unseen worlds. As new as the visions of artists from past centuries, who described, with varying degrees of creativity, never before experienced earthlight, or contemporary artists who translate into visible language sidereal objects about which we possess only numerical data.
