CHRONICLES OF EVERYDAY -2019 JOURNAL
"It was while writing a Diary that I discovered how to capture the living moments." -Anais Nin.
Of all the artwork I do, my sketchbook journals are what I most value. They allow me complete freedom and exploration and because of that, the drawings are fresh and expressive in a way I find very difficult to achieve elsewhere.
My journals are visual diaries. In them I try to capture (as Anais says) "the living moments"
I do lots of drawings looking through my windows.
I also love drawing thresholds. They are magical.
When you look through them you are seeing 2 different worlds.
Stairs have a bit of that quality too, although they don't allow for that simultaneous representation so easily.
Objects around the house is another subject.
Bruno's world is another of my subjects.
His artwork, his bedroom/studio, him working...
A completely free, eccentric spirit, my son Bruno is.
When my mum was ill with Alzheimer, we used to sit down together to draw.
Below is a drawing in Barcelona from my mum's window.
I use my journals to write sometimes. Here below I was recording the resolution of drawing every day.
