Learning To Be Still and Receive

“I am an architect, born in Argentina, who loves design. I have experience trying to understand how light, shape space, volume, and surface in drawing. I find charcoal allows me to deepen shades of of gray and create a chiaroscuro effect. As l softly touch the paper, l am try to capture this light from live models in natural scenes.
In this particular drawing, l am expressing the quietness needed to learn to receive. The solo vase is a metaphor of openness and stillness, spiritual qualities that help with receiving. I found black and white photography so helpful for this search too. I have also enjoyed watercolors as well , since the fluidity of the paint helps me dwell on changing emotions and movement of the psyche. Again, movement being crucial towards creating a lively reality of architecture.
I have worked with children in my art studio allowing them to play on the movement of light with chalk, watercolor, acrylic paint, colored pencils, and even with clay. I’ve been blessed with the recognition of how close all artistic endeavors are, how they open my eyes and mind, and enlighten my creative process.”
