Reading.
Ink on paper.

(These lines are the result of a long process of drawing, rather than initial guesswork. I will provide some ideas behind what I call "Radical Linearism" in a later journal. For now I can only forward you to a journal of mine entitled "Lines and beauty": [link] and ask you to view several of the linear drawings in my gallery.)

I appreciated your thoughts on R.L. - quite nice to see some theoretical underpinnings drawn out. I've found myself drawn to a similar style over the past few years as well, after growing up in a photorealistic style. The simplicity in these pieces is quiet and necessary - it makes me stop and look, which is the first mark of any good art. It also makes me stay to look, which is probably the second mark. Fine work, well done.

Thank you for your wonderful and encouraging words. A wonderful reflection on the words with whcih I tried briefly to share what might have been behind such an unusual appearance. Muchas gracias por tan bellas palabras.

You know, it is odd how I can draw and paint very sophisticated stuff, but during the years 2001 and 2002 most of what came out were these Radical Linearism drawings! I will try to write a journal on why I think I like doing them so much soon. One thing is for certain, don't see too much of this stuff around. :D

Thank you so much for your words! Gracias. There is something about radical minimalism which was very important to me in the years 2001-2002. Although these are small I will try to do them much bigger but without modification. Why do you like minimalism? :-)

I like minimalism because it´s simple,clear and because of the lack of unnecessary things:-) I am dreaming of a minimalstic life very often...
Sometimes I am surfing through the minimalistic wallpapers section - there You can find this simplicity I talk about:-)

Wow, that is one of the greatest pieces of info I have received. I felt quite at home! Heaven must be something like this! (But I had to check exactly what a wallpaper was, oooppps) :D

I also checked out the orchids group. AMAZING. Did you know I come from Colombia where the orchid is tha national flower?

Oh! More pretty line work by my wonderful artiste friend Andres! Yay! :thumb12630210: :giggle: I like this one more than the other one, once again because of the less-chaotic lines in it. I can see a face in this! I love how you work is so... different. At first it looks like just a bunch of lines and squiggles, but when you look it contains objects and things. It's really great! :aww:

My dear friend Alicia. Your words are always so kind and encouraging. I am always happy to hear about you. These drawings were done in between 2000 and 2001, they are about 150 of them. I even have one of a dolphin, which I know you like very much! :D
Lici-Rocker's avatar
Oh wow! Are these your best ones out of the 150? Haha and yeah, I'd love to see the dolphin one! By the way... The whole dolphin thing is just a joke with me and my best friend, I don't really have a dolphin fetish =P Thanks so much for the nice stuff you say :hug: I really appreciate it =)
amelo14's avatar
Yes, the other ones are really ugly. :D (Don't worry. I will keep your fetish a secret! :D)
