Observation and Line. Botanical drawings

Duration: from March 13th to June 8th, 2008.

Joaquim Conca (Barcelona, 1943) belongs to a group of visual creators linked to the Eina School of Art and Design. His specialisations in botanical illustration and years of teaching at Eina have allowed him to base his drawing pedagogy on the direct observation of plants.

Joaquim Conca drew the collection of fifty-six species of wild narcissi in the nursery and the laboratory of the Botanical Institute. These are drawings, the product of deep observation, of interaction with the model, with a firm and defined line and an oriental touch originating from his self-confessed interest in Chinese calligraphy.
