I made another experiment to make an artwork fitting into an architectural environment. Plaster made stuccos were usual elements of buildings in a certain time. It is a kind of sculpture, not encountered as fine art. In Budapest there are many poor blockhouses look like Renaissance or baroque palaces by stuccos. After making the houses the stuccos were painted hundred times: they built into the environment. Nobody has aesthetic problems with them. Someone use them in nostalgic photography. In one world: It is an ideal technique for me.

I used the diagonals of the shapes of the Penrose-tiling. The elements are cross-formed they profile is a usual baroque profile. The structure reminds me to a map of an utopistic ideal city. I like very much the unrealized plans for city-building. Theoretically this work could make to the infinite. If the academy does not destroy it, just paint and paint it again, it will build into the environment too, as the mentioned stuccos does. (They destroyed it already.)
