La noche en dónde nos prometimos siempre llevarnos la contraria. The night when we promised to always contradict ourselves.
By Pablo Diaz
Sometimes I didn’t use to enjoy drawing because it came with a lot of stress. I wanted each trace to be perfect. To finish a piece could took me months and, after I finished with the trace, I couldn’t think of adding colour or anything else because that would screw up my 6 month piece.
My recent work was about letting go all respect I had for my works and life itself, as not giving it so much importance and let it go. So I decided to use pen to make it permanent because that way I couldn’t think too much about changing anything and getting stuck with it.
I find myself fascinated by the idea of portraying people of pictures I find interesting, especially family pictures or lost memories.
My attempt is to let my memory fill the traces; I force myself to take short peeks of the picture and fill the rest of the interpretation of the moment I remember, of the subject.
About the picture’s story: my Grandparents where the perfect couple by the magnetism law: the contrary poles. They got contradicted their hole life and love each other every minute of it.
Sketchbook series is about different memories, stories, or personalities that affected my life permanently.
