This book is the third volume of the Hands Of Time series and covers De Wilde’s new works from the period 2017–2021. It depicts three series of drawings: Pars Pro Toto (2018–2020); Requiem – The Long Goodbye (2017–2018, published in the book Requiem, MER. 2019), which he created in remembrance of art historian Tanguy Eeckhout; and Pi – Fugue pour les survivants (2007–work in progress, part of the collection of S.M.A.K.), which began with the irrational number pi and continues in a long series of numbers after the comma.
The Pars pro toto series is based on Fra Angelico’s frescoes in the San Marco Monastery in Florence. Each drawing represents a particle of colour from one of the frescoes. The colour is represented as an enlarged pixel, framed by the four edges of the adjacent pixels.
