Spain, 1969


The drawing The Silence of the World, made in acrylic on paper and photographic printing, like any other triptych, “treasures the vocation of discovering its central nucleus. By folding down the flaps of the triptych like shutters that turn on imaginary hinges, we are shown the melted whirlpool of the formless, the transformation of a matter that has not been able to stabilise itself. At the same time, in this unfolding of the side flaps, we can glimpse a kind of elemental landscape that is barely hinted at through the textures of dots or pores that accumulate on the surface of the paper. Here the possibility of painting is subordinated to the latticework of a lattice that supposedly interrupts vision and produces an undefined image”.
