“Always in my work, I am referring to something that has moved, disturbed or fascinated me, to which I have been connected emotionally in my childhood or in the present’” CAROL RAMA quoted in Exh. Cat., Torino, Fondation Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Carol Rama, Retrospettiva, March - June 2004, p. 36
Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate although it fails to fully convey the texture and three dimensional nature of the collaged elements visible in the original.
This work is in very good condition. All collaged elements are secure. There is some glue residue around the grey shape towards the centre of the composition, and to the lower left of the rubber collage.
