. . .
The project “/éi/ /’bi:/ /’si:/” (ABC) originated from the intention to give form to the content of thought that precedes the definition of written language. From this attempt, 26 abstract forms traceable to the letters of the Latin alphabet were generated, which are first and foremost shadows or archetypes of content that vibrate in the middle ground between awareness and will.
The creative process that led to the definition of these shapes had as its focus a spontaneous approach to gesture, as in an obsessive stream of consciousness that gradually led to letting content emerge and tracing its boundaries.
In a broader view, the theme of reworking letters and writing belongs to the history of the artist, who in the early 1990s approached contemporary art through the practice of writing.
The project “/éi/ /’bi:/ /’si:/” is the most extreme synthesis of this path, the epilogue that leads back to the roots.
