I am Alba Martín de Villodres Cantero and I like to draw things I don’t understand.
Thinking in images, searching for my own symbols to complete myself, as I already have fissures. My work permits me not to burst. Since I was little, I found a way to tamp my fissures by taking off from the reality that we’re given and going further to create my own one.
The tableaus that were hanging on the walls could be from Picasso, Juan Barjola or any little street market; for me they were representing my environment and my family; I was seeing my godparents in Picasso’s tableau “The two saltimbanques”. I appropriated the painting and built my own reality out of it. I was confusing life with art.
I also dedicated myself to searching for dwarfs in the metro tunnels; I bit other children and plugged coloured crayons in the tap in order to see the water appear in different colours.
Experiences that I lived or imagined feed the drawings I make; I experiment out of my adventure and work with it. A sentence or a poem, an image or a situation provoke that something happens in me, generating an inner state of coincidence, awareness or empathy. Without my experiences I could not work. They cause in me a shock that passes through my body and my mind. To understand it I must draw it, take possession of it and make it mine.

The last shocks I remember… a poem of Alejandra Pizarnik; a photograph from a loved person; see a sparrow that just fell out of his nest. I search for inspiration between those memories and experiences; I investigate my emotions while seizing a pencil and start to scribble.
Ingredients, that are indispensable for my life and my work: poetry, surrealism and love.
