drawings (up to 2017)
I have always been interested in drawing but when I started university to study architecture I traded that creative part for perspectives, linedrawing by hand and later computer drawings and 3D images. I have taken some art history classes and fiure drawing classes, but I didnt really do any drawing in the early years of this century until
I started drawing by hand again some 5 years ago, after participating in several workshops in L´Escosesa with the artist Diego Mallo.
I have since then developed a personal rythm while drawing, this time mostly in charcoal. My style over time has become more loose and direct, and therefore more expressive. After a while I got comfortable embracing and incorporating the imperfections that emerged.
After this intial series of workshops I followed in L´Escosesa I have started reinterpreting my own drawings by painting over them with acrylic paint , first , and later with oil paint. Looking for contrast in texture and trace.
Shortly after I started painting over charcoal drawings using acrylic paint, I started painting portraits not from a photo or a live model but from memory or from the process itsself. Because the subject emerges at the same time as the texture and the trace of f the brush it becomes easier to get the most out of what is on the canvas.
