CORNER – Miguel Vieira Baptista
The drawings – glorious, detailed, rigorosos- are gathered in a beautiful book. They are technical drawings, and all appear at least once in the book full scale. They are technical testimony, precision, but more than that, they are testimonies of love. Only a crazy person in love could spend 90 minutes, two hours around a corner to make such a beautiful thing. It takes dedication, kindness, treat muscle. The designs are made of graphite, and painted a felt pen or brush with a crazy care not to drip. Yes, it’s crazy. Yes, it is beautiful.
