For Francisco Ugarte, the practice of drawing began as mere studio work. He focuses on exploring basic elements such as the line or the circle, the materiality of graphite and charcoal, as well as the idea of drawing as a subjective, concentrated, performance-related and meditative form of expression. Through a consistent economy of means and conceptual techniques, the artist has developed a personal language and a catalogue of distinctive forms that resonate with architectural languages, oriental calligraphy, abstraction and different processual approaches to drawing.
