Book illustration of El entenado by Juan Jose Saer, translated in English as The witness. Part of my collection of ink drawings on books and films. Here I'm working with ink in my favourite way, playing with its unpredictability, letting it run and create beautiful patterns while being very attentive to direct it the way I want it to take. It's a real exercise of mindfulness and being present which is probably what I most love about drawing. The other important aspect I was exploring in these new series of ink drawings is creating depth and atmosphere by working with layers and different intensity of tone. Paper is watercolour acid free 300gsm

ARTIST STATEMENT: I work my pieces very intuitively, with ink and watercolour. I love the unpredictability of these mediums. My process is always one of exploration and discovery. I try to be open to whatever comes up and if I manage to be present, amazing things start to happen. It's generally a very pleasurable experience. Beauty is a big incentive for me. The beauty of colour as it appears on a piece of paper gives me lots of joy. My background is in architecture so composition is very important for me. However I develop it as I go, as in a dialogue with whatever comes up. The accidental is part of my process from the beginning. My subjects start from accidental encounters with images, books, films, dreams... I am inspired by everything. I believe the artist is this person who has a certain attitude towards life, an aesthetic attitude. This means that their first concern with the world is not material, functional or moral. The artist looks at the world with curiosity and admiration, even with awe. From this attitude, the creative response emerges. I work in series of pieces that explore a theme, a colour or a technique. To most of them I keep going back through the years adding new pieces. I feel the possibilities are never exhausted.
