“In the exhibition ‘pixels of time’, Maria Schina uses fragments of old photographs and letters as the main material for her artistic compositions. By covering the fragments in wax and placing them in her own structured space, she lets them lay as sacred vessels of a distant past. Their transformed existence alters the viewing experience, and the resulting artifact seems indifferent to the meaning it carries and is concerned only to "encapsulate time”. The retrieval of memory thus becomes more complete, recalling all sensations. As for the past, it is implied forceful, continuous and full of the agony of separation and reconnection."
