This series of drawings is inspired by the punctuation marks used in various poems. I drew a circle based on each “comma,” “period,” or “semicolon,” connected them with straight lines, and then removed the text. The piece is a framework of pauses, of silences. The resulting graphic is a field of tensions and inaudible forces.
25 drawings based on poems by Xavier Villarrutia, Julio Cortázar, Rosario Castellanos, Cesare Pavese, and Li Bo, among others.
