Drawing is one of the first thinking exteriorizations recorded in human history.

Cave paintings commonly include strokes that in just a few gestures, figures such as men, animals and hand negatives are represented as well as abstract formations; in these, the desire of representing one's world is captured and so is the universe in a cosmogony of men and deities. In addition, we cannot stop ourselves from acknowledging a thinking task in these stratagems, when registering with them a conscious narrative of hunting processes, living creatures' environments and the yearning for portraying for others a record of a significant world.

'Dibujar cómo pensar' proposes to appreciate within drawing as a technique a magical function in which notions such as narration, the past, the future, imagination and the universe of ideas converge and when the process of drawing itself is manifested as a thinking activity. Under these premises and the idea of challenging the support, technique and material nature of drawing, we gather a series of different works of art belonging to different artists that while aiming for a wide spectrum of possibilities oscillate between desire and spontaneity from a "naive" or "naif" language to a technical and rational representation of reality.

RODRIGO
SPINEL
Patience, discipline, effort, concentration, and perseverance are words that nurture Rodrigo Spinel's artistic practice. These are concepts and moral values that allude to hard work, and dedication, reflected in the artist's attraction to objects that exhibit intense labor of repetition, such as banknotes and stamps drawn line by line in their original die, or in the walls built by summing up hundreds of bricks laid one by one. The figure of the mason is a central referent in which Spinel recognizes these values, and using it as a simile between the effort of building a wall brick by brick,...
