"Your figure isn't even perfectly drawn, nor perfectly painted, and carries the imprint of this miserable indecision everywhere," said the master to the young painter of the unkown masterpiece. Perhaps the game with images and technical accuracy was what made me return to the Balzac story in parallel with the proposal of Fabrizio Arrieta. Although he uses recognizable elements, the strength of shape and color can require the distortion of the figures and touching the limits of abstraction. His painting gives up the idea of totality, making visible the fragments and digital media participating in the process of cutting, editing, and assembling. This "footprint of indecision" is perhaps the biggest contribution of its proposal: a possible place for the Viewer.
