About This Project

In the forced Vortex

“The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” Genesis 1, 2.

“In the forced Vortex” consists of 2 drawings, both 3 meters tall and 7 meters long for which each of the drawings had to be divided into different sections due to its size. In reality, the work is composed by 100 drawings, each of them 60×70 cm wide which join together.

Specifically conceived for the recently restored Espíritu Santo chapel in the Cathedral of Cuenca, the artwork is shown in the Art Center of Alcobendas from October 18th to November 23rd 2017, for it to be seen in Madrid.

Both complete drawings exist in a 1m x 70 cm format as previous studies.

A great piece of work, only 49 cm short of Picasso’s Guernica. It was created only using color pencils and for a specific space, in which it fits like a glove.
