Charcoal, white chalk and ink on toned paper, 130x90 cm, 2019
All the materials used are of a prime quality.
The series are a homage to the traditional craftsmanship from the XIX century. The strategy of seeking the maximum elegance, in the simplification of the forms and the organisation of values, is key for this idea of beauty.
In this series I want to express also my Love for spontaneity, the gestures and brushstrokes in the visual language.
I’m specially seeking the beauty in the composition of the figure in space. There is an extraordinary pleasure in placing the abstract elements in their precise order.
In the other hand, accidents help the artwork to feel more alive, as if it was in permanent process. We can imagine the battle of the materials, giving form to the human figure.
This is the 7th piece of the "human" collection.
