THORNS ALSO GROW IN THE SILENCE


In front of the silent sheet I make the first cut, the configuration of that vast territory is bankrupt. In front of my eyes I observe that there is no return, after the first spine rises there is no turning back, the damage is done. I can only move forward. Thorns also grow in the silence, it is an exercise of introspection that builds through cutting the paper a universe at times painful, for others disturbing. A stubborn and methodical exercise that ends with the result of a papel that acquires body and time, which stands in space affecting who approaches it.
The bristling paper lodges under its body, of lights and shadows, intentions that reminds us of Gastón Bachelard: at the bottom of the matter grows a dark vegetation; in the night of the matter they black flowers bloom. They already bring their velvet and the formula of their perfumes.
