I have always been fascinated by drawing as a magical practice that connects us in a simple manner with what is and what is not, with the things that exist and can be touched on the one hand, and with geometric abstractions of hopes for a somewhat different world.
Drawing is easy because it manifests itself in unimagined possibilities: in fact, drawing ultimately serves to understand things better and to bring us closer to the mystery of beauty.
“Before becoming files to be sent, they are slow drawings, accurate tasks that he would not want to hand over to the teacher, the company, the gallery but which in the end come out of the sheet, breaking the frame, getting fat, multiplying. ”
Marco Sammicheli (from the catalogue of the exhibition “Mario Trimarchi: un romantique radical”, the Italian Cultural Institute, Paris, 2019)
“There is a drawing that is nothing but the sum of all the millions of drawings in our lives and which, in the end, as Jorge Luis Borges said, is nothing but our self-portrait.”
