Retratos de Papel


RETRATOS DE PAPEL / PAPER PORTRAITS

“Anonymous protagonists of unwritten stories, which reveal themselves through
the opaque, hidden and inscrutable memory of their skin.”

“ …the ambiguous nature of these portraits defy definition, where the painted surface fuses with its own shadows, and these in turn acquire a pictorial importance. The paper transcends its role as a simple base to become the essential media of the works.”
