This enigmatic drawing (more precisely it is a photographic print of a digital drawing,) which the Artist calls “grafica,” is part of a series that began in 2004, easily identifiable by the compulsive and playful regular repetition of circles, all 1 cm in diameter, either all black and white and technically immaculately precise (like in this case) or hand drawn with felt pens, with improbable approaching colors. The circular blacks signs, repeated side by side, highlight the sheer simplicity of this minimalistic artwork, and provoke an optical effect and difficult perception, contrasting with the standard precise conventional nature of the size of 1 cm in diameter of the circles. The artwork results enveloping nevertheless its apparent coldness, because of the childlike character of the simple and repetitive gesture of displaying touching circles on a sheet of white.
