Pastel and metal pigments on paper Subject/Description
visual logbook of the transoceanic journey made by Mariagrazia Pontorno, in the two hundredth anniversary of Leopoldina Habsburg's expedition to Rio de Janeiro. Moleskine Notebook records the 33 days of navigation with a monochrome approach: the use of a palette only limited to blue and golden tones returns the modulation of sky and sea of the Oceanic crossing.
" I begin to draw the logbook for the Moleskine Foundation, choosing to do two monochromes every day, to fix the chromatic modulations of sky and sea on paper, during the day and the night. I specially brought with me a wide range of blues, and grays, and also golden for when I will begin to see the starred sky ". Archival Fund
