Six drawings from the Round Trip project
Graphite and mixed technique on 300g Somerset paper - 2010

In “Round Trip” the artist explores pictorially the concepts “limit” and “exclusion." He refers not only to limits expressed as physical barriers, but also to those wich are the reason for socio-cultural exclusion, which gains special relevance in the current scenario of socio-political economic crisis. The idea of the project came to him while he was drawing during an everyday train trip from Barcelona to Badalona. This fifteen-minute railroad journey takes the raider through a somewhat depressing “no man's land” surrounded by sleepy suburbs and industrial parks, spattered with building sites under construction. Seen from afar, this cement landscape reminds the artist of military fortifications, an uninviting, hostile world with cold, heavy architecture. Nevertheless, the pictorial language used in the project is characterized by its sensitiveness and weightlessness, thus creating a certain counterweight to the crudeness of its content.
