A palimpsest (from Greek palimpsēstos "scraped again") is a manuscript page, most of the time on parchment, from which the text has been scraped or washed off and which can be used again.
Because in the middle ages parchment was expensive, this method was used by copyists who reused ancients manuscripts to overwrite on it.
The documents was previously deinking or erased with a pumice stone.
I've tried to adapt this process to the painting using a mixed technic acrylic/shellac ink and a full range of various tools.
This series of abstract paintings, I hope, will surprise and reach the sensibility of everyone by the depth and the subtlety of the colors as well as the richness of matters which are born from the successive rewriting.
