Juan Escudero Bilbao, 1966. To draw, I put as a condition that all the marks made are visible and no correction is made. I apply a system in which a first line prefigures the back line and if an irregularity occurs, it is transmitted on the next line. Similar processes occur in nature so that these a posteriori drawings connect with familiar patterns and shapes such as surfaces, tissues, fluids, orography, waves, etc. The basic idea for drawing is not to represent something but to activate a process. It is akin to automatic drawings that we unconsciously make when talking on the phone. A drawing like a musical improvisation, an automatic writing, a clear traffic for the present without correcting anything. Since 2017 I have turned myself into chalk printmaking. I see the matrix once finished with the size of the drawing already invariable as platonically “out of time”. The idea frozen. Then the stamping processes would be the movement, the dynamic time that crosses the plate with its wealth of life.
