It all started during the summer. With plenty of sun and heat Miguel Palma missed the winter and decided to think of gray. “There is a kind of nostalgia,” he said. However it is very difficult to paint in gray and so he got some pantones that he brought from the United States, with colors used in construction in Arizona, where he was in residence for a year.

From the pantones he did an exercise that falls within the Abstract Expressionism and dripping, and from there he began telling stories. “I’ve cut out pictures and phrases from books and magazines. Each drawing refers to a day thinking about a certain subject,” he says. These were painted daily for 2 months, resulting in 46 drawings.
