In what has to be seen to be believed, the composer of the marvellous artwork says, “These works are made on and with paper, charcoal and Indian ink, showing the physiognomy of the characters, particularly their faces, and highlighting the accidents on the skin. With the use of a particular technique of manipulating the paper and the way of lighting, the pictures are constructed between shapes and traces on a gray scale, where the painted surface fuses with its own shadows.”
The portraits are all inspired from the artist’s trip to the north of India and Nepal. On his creations, the gifted artist adds, “It is a series of large format portraits of mature women. At this point, I am interested in portraying the older age. The experience of a whole life can be resumed in retrospective and somehow be codified in length of time. It is time which prints the continuum of life in faces and bodies of people.” The exhibition, put up at Instituto Cervantes, concludes this Saturday.
