"Black lines, meandering, gathering and knotting, winding to signs, faces, and landscapes – calligraphy? Rock art? Abstract expressionism? The black lines are marks of repair works on the streets of a swiss alpine valley, called the Schams. Where frost and heat afflict the tarmac, the cracks get fixed with hot asphalt. These repainted fractures are isolated from photographs and remain as abstract forms."
