Drawings

[…] Délia’s drawings are done in one go, no second sessions allowed. There are no corrections or improvements.

Before the model there is no time for polished treatments, the model may imperceptibly shift pose. It is almost mandatory that with each glance one or more marks are carved on the paper, and none of them are guaranteed to be the best. Decisions are quick and have a strong dose of intuition.

It’s a drawing taken by storm.

” Moving away from perceptive theories,

the quality of Délia’s pictoric surface reveals a great stroke gesture, visceral,

one could say, much more significant and energetic when it sticks to drawings only, and the polar contrast between black and  white.”

Maria Antonieta Lopes Vilão Vaz de Morais, PhD in Art History, professor of Art, Design and Humanities at ESTG, from Instituto Politécnico de Viana do Castelo
