‘Copper Skin’ is a project that investigates the way in which the copper metal, during its oxidation process, produces a unique green on its surface and this results in a form of epidermis of the metal. This has for the artist a very poetic connotation, a kind of Phoenix revival: instead of evoking deterioration and decay, rust becomes beauty for the eye, this metaphor responds to a very positive personal moment in which the artist finds herself.
