DIÁLOGOS SERIES (February 2021 - Present)

Ongoing Project. Archival Digital Prints on  Epson hot press natural 300gr paper

I have been working on Diálogos (Dialogues) parallel to other studio pieces. They are produced at ARRO Studio in Houston, alongside artist printmaker Armando Rodriguez, with whom I have been collaborating since 2018. Diálogos are a pairing, an ongoing conversation between drawing and photography. The photos come from my daily walks, most of the drawings are from the Drawing-Collage series.

 

In Diálogos, photography is an expressive means in itself. It is not used to assist drawing but rather, as the drawings, it expresses its own synthesis. Both, drawing and photos in conversation aim to articulate and explore pure and essential forms. As a handwriting evolving in time and space, they allow me to revisit natural and urban environments. They are an exercise centered on my specific responses to nature and architecture. They make me wonder if Houston’s highways and bridges nowadays, including their huge ecological footprint, will be the vestiges of the XXI century, 100 years from now.
