Note: Elena Alonso only has been as selected in this year's contest. Inspired by the landscapes he had met on a trip to Finland, the artist made this drawing with black pastel, a technique that had long been working. At present, it has introduced the color and geometry in their compositions, approaching more typical forms of architecture and design. His preferred medium of expression remains the drawing, as the author explains, describing his work: "Developing my work primarily through drawing, a medium that helps me to think and to combine the different aspects that I try in my work. As a practical and as construction and representation method, is usually present in all my work, regardless of the format you use. (...) On the other hand, I try to create spaces of indeterminacy, playing with the concrete and the imprecise, to search, and to encourage own internalization and transformation of what is given to us."(website and blog of the artist: http://www.elenaalonso.com/ and www.comiendoterreno.blogspot.com).
