Raúl Illarramendi’s series EA, which stands for Evidence of Absence, comes with a double commentary on representation. The traces and marks clearly depicted are only imaginary and result from the real mark making by coloring the background and leaving the empty spaces where the traces lay. They can be interpreted as "anti-drawings".
With seemingly opposing aesthetics, all these series are the product of a continuous reflection. The representation of a false stain, a false fluidity, a false rhythm and false event. "Technically, these drawings are made solely with the tip of the crayon, and no other tool is employed on the mark making. What interests me in this effort is not the seductive reward of an obsessive imitation, but rather the result of forging spontaneity to create new compositions and new images that I could not make with real paint", Illarramendi says.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
