CULTIVATING THE LINE. Part I.

So here I am assimmilating a bit more of who I am, writing few words about what I felt, seen or did…if some of you read the earlier posts about “The Art of freestyle”, one know I love the line, for its instantaneous factor, emerging truth of the ego, of the “I” in the “Now”.

So I often start with the line that draws the profile of a face, a sort of reflect, a witness. A referent. And I see what I couldn’t before, I trust what I would have doubt, thanks to my hand moving on the paper.

While in Madrid between the journeys through Earth, I took a gouache marker and drew lines after having forseen them in the white empty space, so that someone would appear in front of me.

I stare at the paper, as if it was a window, wait for lines to appear, sometimes impulse them my self, or at least the first one. Thus in between the hundreds that passed roughly through my sight and disappeared, so only one will be chosen. The next shall rhyme with it/he/her. Then, I fill in some of the shapes with colors, trying to make them move around thé whole surface.

Eventually, I leave time bring an association of words to me, and use it as a title for each piece. This one is name “Au dela de Moi”.

Here is the result of these experimentation:
