Leon Center Collections

Drawing related to the discourse of "Mundo de Jop" (José Perdomo) in which the author refers to ancestral memory and childhood. In the drawing work, the ocher colored paper is a contextual range and the thematic transcribes signs and images that recreate pictography and pre-Columbian objects. In a composition of elements and ordered squared signs, they stand out for their size and vertical rhythm: an Africanist idol (on the right), an anthropomorphic spatula (center) and a spear, on the far left. A whitish halo accentuates and surrounds the mysterious character of some representations.

First Drawing Prize of the XIV Eduardo León Jimenes Art Contest, 1992.

Curious fact:

The elongated and curved image that is enclosed in the most notorious of the whitish halos, reminds us of the spatulas vómicas used by the tainos to induce vomiting and purify prior to the beginning of the Rite of the Cohoba.
