Francisco Valverde (Morelos, Mexico, 1972), with no brush only cans filled with colorful synthetic matter, shares his path through the essential element of drawing and painting: “line”. A plastic and vivid complexity, which may suggest a bottom, the depth of a form or a story.

The result of the need to re-start is assembled here. An interest in the accumulation of powerful steering lines, imperfect lines, which denies its main characteristic: righteousness. Lines that appear as stripes of a child playing, forming a rhythmic structure in which a desired order is perceived. Compositions that resemble a lattice rather than a frame.
