... Is already stone itself
This collection of lithographs completes the boulders created for "A face that toils so close to stones...".
Once again the repetition of a -perhaps- absurd task, and physically demanding process brings me closer to this transmutation. When transferring the body parts to the surface of the stone, the skin becomes that of the limestone. Lithographic reticulations and a grainy grease-attracting areas are the new epidermis. I am that which I do: my hands get shaped by the irregular contour of each limestone, my back hurts from bowing to the stone, my legs get sturdy after all the graining, and my arms are constantly soar, like a latent indicator that the transmutation is about to take place. 
How much time do I have before I become stone myself?
