the FACE OF WORDS: VISUAL MUSINGS ON LITERATURE
January 24 - March 20, 2019
The Face of Words: Visual Musings on Literature includes 22 drawings made on Stonehenge paper in Kraft color (Cotton paper, acid free), and drybrush. Characters from different literary sources are the protagonists of these drawings.
While making his first drawings for the exhibition, Trelles explained:
“I didn't choose the characters, they chose me. The figures are emerging in the middle of the drawing process. While I’m drawing the figure, he or she reminds me of a book, a text, a passage or a myth and then I associate and name the figure.” This aspect recalls the writer’s exercise creating a character while the story is being constructed.
These 22 drawings, while being exhibited, are accompanied by a quote. The quotes collect the essence of the character depicted in the drawings.
