Las Manuelas (2019-)

"Las Manuelas" is a physical, emotional, moral, and psychological interpretation of a person. In the attempt to depict the true character of this woman, the drawings create an idealised figure, which is charged with my own desires, my convictions, and political opinions. The tension between reality and its idealisation is represented with precise geometrical elements, which portray the figure in unexpected situations."Las Manuelas" is embedded in the tradition of the portraits of Hermenegildo Bustos, Picabia, Goya where the interpretation of the characteristics of a person is more important than a realistic imitation. Here the representation of a person becomes a psychological portrait both of the depicted person as well as the depicting artist.The series is a work in progress that to date has around 300 drawings.
