Guillermo Kuitca, The Drawing Center: NYC-ARTS | Exhibition

Since 1994, Kuitca has taken failed and discarded canvases, stretched them over an abandoned table from his parents' garden, and then spent periods of time ranging from three to six months creating intentional and accidental doodles, drawings, and recordings on their surfaces. The "Diarios," as the artist calls them, are the most transparently personal works in his oeuvre as they gather residue like phone numbers, titles of paintings, email addresses, blank spots where books sat, lists, and collaged elements that record the ebb and flow of life inside and outside the studio.
