LA SORPRESA DE EXISTIR (The Surprise of Existing)

1973. Pencil on paper. 33x22 cm.

A scream comes out of her mouth, her nostrils, even her ears.
A descent or an ascent?

To become aware of what it is to exist: surprise, disappointment, sadness, horror. Appearing in this world or disappearing from it: no choice is given. We are the toys of chance.

At the two ends of the long diagonal synthesis design to the right, resembling an elongated “S”, there is a return curve in the opposite direction: symmetrically falling up or down, in a perpetual movement.
