Paths of Infinity

Australia fascinated me for its immense space, for the feeling of freedom and I was captivated by the light and by the magical colours that the rocks took on at sunrise or at sunset. Above all going round the mythical Ayers Rock, Uluru = Mother Earth for the Aborigines. I could feel its sacredness, it transmitted mystery and religiosity to me, it struck me in all its grandeur: as if faced with a magnificent cathedral. All of this, surrounded by the desert that at that moment was flowering and fragrant.

In these maps, "Paths of Infinity" I wanted to portray and transmit the immensity of these spaces which moved me so much.
