Confinement Drawing/Dibujo de Confinamiento Nª 6, one of 15 drawings in this series



These drawings came as result of the very long period of confinement and uncertainty that most of us have lived through during this viral crisis. The drawings I turned to could only look inward. As these works evolved, they insisted on a lack of clarity, a melding of forms, shadows and not knowing what the future held.

Nice work Marvin.  I paused in this drawing and reflected on the inspiration behind it.  I can come back to it and see different things that change my experience of the work.   Do you have more drawings? Maybe an album of just drawings also?

Thank you,

Raúl

Hola Raúl, I appreciate very much what you've said. In fact I have a series of 15 drawings from this serie de confinamiento, all on  my website. I'm also now doing a similar series with color and graphite.  I'd be happy to set up a 2nd album with 6 of the b+w drawings. I've also decided to just leave this site as it is, and not redo its order. It seems to work ok despite the reverse order.

here below, I'll copy the text I wrote about this series: 

The long and unpredictable period of confinement, fear, and having to live with an incapacity to see what the future might, or might not, hold for all of us, is something many of us may have confronted. It was as if one lived in an unending, threatening fog. And so, there was no possibility to draw anything specific, grounded or precise.

The drawings I turned to could only look inward, to what for me is an internal river within all of us. Was it possible to record anything of this subconscious, fluid movement? And what meaning might come forth from it? As these works evolved, they insisted on a lack of clarity, a melding of forms, shadows and disappearance into undefinable vagueness. Form fading into atmosphere, though very much present.

That these drawings use only soft graphite and erasers has let me deepen my love of the subtleties that such basic tools allow. That these are internal and wander in a darkened space is simply the nature of the hand that drew them.

Marvin, I enjoyed looking at your drawings and sculptures in your website https://www.marvinliberman.com/  
As in previous times of turmoil and change, art helps us all understand and question the times we are living in.  Thank you for your work and inspiration.  I look forward to seeing how it continues to evolve.

Un abrazo desde Maine, USA

Raul
