Photographic Drawings

14 November 2019 - 6 January 2020

In a colour and volume study, the "Photographic Drawings" series follows the concept of the spontaneous gesture of Zen philosophy.

Drops of ink are conducted on a small surface of 4 cm and immediately photographed with a macro lens in search of the three-dimensionality and the register of light and shadow.

In a colour and volume study, the "Photographic Drawings" series follows the concept of the spontaneous gesture of Zen philosophy.

Drops of ink are conducted on a small surface of 4 cm and immediately photographed with a macro lens in search of the three-dimensionality and the register of light and shadow. The image is finished in large format prints by altering the scale of these chromatic volumes.

 

When reaching a non-rational plane in a search of negative spaces and the relationship between the masses and colour, asymmetry and minimalism, the compositions often overflow the limit of the margin and background.

 

Within the ZEN philosophy, the action takes place in the present and the register of this quick event, where the still wet and fresh paint reflects the light and occupies the third dimension even though it is contained in the two-dimensional plane of the photographic surface.

 

With the influence of the symbolic content of the signs and the unconscious, the body of work of this series contemplates and aligns the oriental simplicity and the search for amazement in the visual phenomenon of the third dimension to our direct gaze.
