Drawing, collages and related
My commentary, 2018
Drawing has been a way of thinking.
Carlos Fajardo says that "drawing is the space between", Desenho como Instrumento, Cooperativa dos Artistas Plásticos de São Paulo, 1979. Of course.
A portrait, even a caricature, is precisely what is between the several turns of the line. A line that somewhat determines the quality of its expression. Ironic, funny,denouncing ...
But What about the circle? Is it that the circle is itself its surrounding line or the disk that is, actually, the "space between"? Here no deformation is allowed except for the quality of the line: hue, value, sensitivity ... The disk, though, will always be the same
Phrase attributed to Picasso draw my attention: "Before a painting was a sum of additions. With me a painting is a sum of destruction. "
Such things would destroy the circle. They would overshadow the disk to construct an expressive far-reaching mode than the specific object of that drawing. Meaning that it goes beyond the "space between".
The space around, them?
Or better, the "space between" those who see and that wich is seeing.
