Sketchbook 2017

When I draw in my notebook, I tend to deconstruct what I see around me. I don’t know exactly why I do this, maybe it’s a way to simplify things to make the world easier to understand. Or maybe it’s because a drawing can never reflect reality, so why should I bother myself with realism and details?

After years of academic drawing, precise and careful, drawn from life or pictures, I might just feel the need to let go. Even though I’ve never been really interested in reflecting reality, it’s a harder process than it seems. Nowadays, I think a drawing is better when enlightened by spontaneity and imagination. Repetition is a relaxing process, the more sketches, the more I let go.

The normal sized object becomes a single cell, an kind of atom, the very basis of the object itself.
