камък textures

photo paper 21 x 21 cm


камък textures is a series of origami dedicated to stone texture (камък in Bulgarian).

The series was born from a personal research that began in Sofia following a stone sculpture master and it’s focus is to the develop a new code intevention/sculpture on stone defined :

Bloodless transformation of stone

The works follow a new stone sculpture code that can be defined as “bloodless stone sculpture “.

The way of acting is not directed to shaping - molding - giving form to the stone, but the focus is to growthing or

transfigurating the potentiality of a “stone rock”.

The sculptures are a consequence simple and direct of the original shape of the stone rocks.

Every stone is chosen for its ability to suggest and for its ability to become.

The plaster also comes into harmony with the stone and at the same time carries out an enforcement action.

The series of works falls into a wider research on contemporary ruina.


The body of works will include a series of origami, each made by a 21 x 21 cm square photo sheet, featuring different stone textures, from marble to slate, granite, porphyry, serifs, and more.

The focus is to look for the endless possibilities of stones. I can see here the lightness and thickness, their depth. Each origami is an unearthly stone.
