Bruta la Caligrafia

2017 These pieces give the name to my new serie of calligraphic painting, Bruta, produced for and shown at the exhibitions of Bienal del Cartel Bolivia 2017. In this stage my work is an ode to the alphabet. Fat sans serif romans mixed with fat fraktur letters generating raw forms like blocks of stones. Acrylic on manual recycled seed paper and application of golden leaf. The paper was produced specifically for this work, although very light its appearance reinforces the idea of a raw material.
