The 'U238 - Pb206' work juxtaposes uranium powder and lead, two stages of the same material separated by millions of years, and contrasts their respective colours: Yellow and Grey. Likewise, the work relates the concept of monochrome to time. Its scales induce the inconceivable, the unthinkable and the unimaginable as part of the ontology of this singular form of painting.
