Trace collection is very symbolic. The artist’s intention was to materialize the trace that would leave the carved object on another media. Therefore, he created a link,… a dialogue between the sculpture and its footprints on the paper… between a very strong and eternal material and a very fragile and light support. This is the reason why Baldini carved the bottom of this sculptures series in the aim of printing this hidden drawing on the paper. In this respect, each sculpture has its own edited and hand signed lithography representing its own trace! So poetic, isn’t it?
