MAITE CENTOL. Resistencia y Contradicción. Ejercicios 2016-2017

Resistencia y contradicción is a selection or set of works chosen among the series of painting and drawing made during the last three years. Based on ironic repetitions of simple and basic compositional elements with an own iconography of the signage, graphics or representations of the statistical study.

On paper, drawings with graphite and watercolor pencils that reinterpret graphics, turning the coded representation of figures into landscapes, into current and decontextualized skyline.

Drawings on the impediment and the limits that seem to seek to transcend abstraction to generate images and compositions that transport us to an area that is not far from us or unknown. Drawing as a thinking tool, through abstraction and graphic coding in the representation of territories, maps, limits; on the natural boundaries and on the built walls.
