Product description

When the image refers back to the text and the text refers back to the image, neither one can exist independently because they both lack any meaning without the other. Andres Barba's prose is strong and profound, and Pablo Angulo's broad-stroked drawings imbue the text with the dynamism and mobility characteristic of the vertiginous proximity to the unknown. Prose and drawings coalesce in this book, creating snapshots whose common thread is the story of a never-ending free-fall. "Cuando la imagen remite al texto y el texto remite a la imagen, ninguno existe de manera independiente, pues ambos carecen de significado sin el complemento del otro. La prosa de Andres Barba es dura y profunda y los dibujos de trazos gruesos y rusticos de Pablo Angulo aportan al texto el dinamismo y movilidad propios de la aproximacion vertiginosa hacia lo desconocido. Prosa y dibujos se reunen y compenetran en este libro formando pequenas instantaneas cuyo hilo conductor es el relato de una caida interminable. "
