Painting is closely related to drawing in the work of Francisco Ugarte. It departs from conceptual and minimalist approaches such as the use of the brushstroke or the trace of different materials on the canvas. His practice also delves into chromatic explorations and interventions to the frame, which he understands as an architectural element. These compositions approach the act of painting as a process and as a particular instant in which the artist brings his subjectivity into play. Following his work methodology, the artist starts with a defined number of resources in order to explore their relationship one another within a specific context.
