“The Veil of Maya 3” can be easily subscribed to the tradition of the so called acheiropoieta, a Greek notion that generally defines the “icons made without hands”. The mysterious images composing this series consist of found contact sheet prints from the 60s on top of which random negatives got stuck, mainly due to storage, time and humidity. This appropriated material builds up a constellation of its own: floating in their ethereal appearance, the feminine nudes decompose their transparency in sibylline conjunctions, revealing themselves as desirable “icons” miraculously conceived.
