about drawing  1|2|3|4   accidentally records a certain moment or a quick thought, he usually searches for that personal, autonomous and ultimate image. In most cases the directness of many drawing techniques is an evident theme for sensitivity. Clarity, veiling, change, masking, directness are all notions that have to do with a secret desire to find things that were not there before. There is in that image that has been created, that has been drawn, something of what was suspected and that was reached for. It has acquired its outline and its meaning on paper. That final coherence of lines and stains, lines that travelled across the paper, stains that originated impulsively that has become the image that is the drawing.
