When I create. Sometimes past pass by and try to claim his place. Someother time, futur just show up on the paper, as a sign, or a door, a possibility.
Most time, I draw the present.
The continous large lines, the Curve, consciously moving through the page, allows the piece to evolve in a larger timespace, and so to represent a larger period, a sort of evolving instant. If once the lines are chosen the representation of the period you where in seems and instant rather than a journey, the process of drawing each curve in one fluid gesture feels like expressing a huge field of unrevealed possibilities.
Here is the Queen Anrami, Reina de Copa.
I just seen the face of this woman birth, and loved her smile.
As her structure grew, I realized the global piece would miss information on the upper left corner, so I had to guess what she would hold in her hand, or what would be around her, what her context would be…
She appeared serene, her long hair evoquing the curves of her body, she is bombing her chest, proud, holding something… a cup fusing to her lips.
The composition still was incomplete, but while thinking about the colors I remembered an image, a gift from a friend, a Morroccan Rami cardset. And I recognized the attitude of the woman in the queen of cups who was holding a magic stick. I used the starstick as the contextual element of the picture. Here is the detail of inspiration and the result.
