In Paris in the late Fifties the Beat Generation writer William Burroughs and his sidekick Brion Gysin developed the cut-up method. It involved taking a piece of finished text and cutting it into...

WILDLINES By Ytaelena Lopez
Hardcover: $40.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
I love to push the boundaries of the perception of our own bodies and their influence in our social relations and our own emotions and fears. In my WILDLINES series I interact with my subjects to... More > make an imaginary topography of the person I see (kinda of soul cartography), using Kandinsky’s theories in "Point and Line to Plane" and a very physical, albeit elaborate drawing. For example, the Warhol ("My favorite Rogue") is mostly straight lines in angles, full of drama. It’s my way to narrate a subject full of contradictions, sometimes deep in relation to his context, sometimes shallow in his own intimacy. "The Kiss" is round forms in warm colors, that escalate their hues and curves in the place when passion reaches its peak. The image of David Bowie ("My childhood hero"), sexy and severe, done in a in a intricate triangular-line labyrinth, brings back memories of the singer as a villain dressed in tight leotard, as the king trying to subvert the basement of popular culture.< Less
