DescriptionAurelio Octavius Series is a stage work based on Marcus Aurelius mural pieces where the counterbalance of double row vertical panels establishes a dialogue of recurrent juxtaposition. This continuous ambivalence is a threshold of synthetic language as a process of revealing the genesis of colour suffusion. The regeneration of ghost images traced down by pattern and line, act as border lines of tonal and chromatic modulation. Although the original drawings are a constant variable, the crossover effect of light transforms each stage work into a particular temperament. In this regard, the transition between every stage begins to enclose a third form.
