Spotted Lake is a saline alkali lake located northwest of Osoyoos in the eastern Similkameen Valley of British Columbia, Canada. The lake is richly concentrated with various minerals. Most of the water in the lake evaporates over the summer, revealing colorful mineral deposits. Large “spots” on the lake appear and are colored according to the mineral composition and seasonal amount of precipitation. Magnesium sulfate, which crystallizes in the summer, is a major contributor to spot color. In the summer, remaining minerals in the lake harden to form natural “walkways” around and between the spots.

Matteo Mauro’s works include techniques of digital engraving which produces paintings of fictional impressionist landscapes and traced and abstracted ‘capriccios’ prints.
Micromegalic Inscriptions are computational engravings of traced and abstracted capriccios. These digital creations, which lie in the realm of Generative Art, do not just reinterpret the mechanical processes of traditional engraving, but being reproducible infinite times and anywhere, exemplify the evolution of mass production practices and the inevitable symbiosis between the man and the machine. Thus, morphogenic spontaneity and mathematical constraints are processed by a software, to create new metaphors to enrich traditional paradigms.
Below a series of artworks that reinterpret Wilhelm Kolbe’s etching “I too was in Arcadia”.
