Scissors, paper, stone!The latest issue of the journal Naturecarries an article on the
first known human drawing, dating from some 73.000 years ago. This new/old message forces us to think again and reflect on the forces and needs driving human signs, and to imagine what occurs prior to the artistic gesture. Where does a drawing gestate before its appearance on a surface? Is drawing a vehicle universally capable of expressing human mental imagery? The selection of works that RocioSantaCruz is presenting is a desire to reassess the ‘before and after’ of pen strokes and spaces, in short, to examine the intersections in drawings. It includes works by Mar Arza (Spain, 1976), Ana Garcia-Pineda (Spain, 1982), Gonzalo Elvira (Argentine, 1971), and Ferran Garcia Sevilla (Spain, 1949).
